I'm just looking for some feedback really. I have previous built countless pc's and sold them on for a nice profit. However, more and more people are looking for laptops and I was wondering:

1. Is building a laptop as easy as building a pc (I can't find a [u]decent[/u] websites that have a tutorial.
2. The parts are smaller and as such more expensive (plus you have to deal with the screen). Therefore, is there much profit in it?

Chris just walk away from this idea.

pc have standard mounting points of motherboards laptops don't

pc you can plug any graphics card into a pc tft screens are driven by propriety card built into the motherboard.

not to mention keyboards cdrom and floppy disk drive all have to be matched to the case.

your best bet would be to import unbranded clones from the fareast
