    That was ne 3 years ago, except I said Build a PC? I've always wondered how they can compress something like a huge ATX computer case into a case thats no wider than a 5 page book. First of all, is this weird thing possible. If so, how do i do it, I've taken apart a laptop before, I just don't know how to make one!

    You can only "build a laptop" by buying all the parts for one specific model and putting them together.

    Just as you could go to an auto parts store and order every part for a specified car model, then assemble it.

    It will cost many, many times more than one out of the showroom though.

    While desktop hardware is almost universal, not so with laptops. Everything is proprietary to each make and model, apart from the RAM and the HDD.

    oo ok I see, so say I want to make a laptop, so (say for example a ferrari laptop) I would first have to find out what the parts are, and so on, and then I would have to gather them and put them together? (by the way, i'm not too fond with ferrari laps)

    Thanks
