    Hello. I own an IBM THinkpad laptop, I am wanting to change the "case" of the computer. I do not know if this is possible, I want to put the internal componets of my computer into another laptops chasis. How would i go about doing that? Also where could I buy a laptop case?
    Thank you in advance.

    Why do you want to do this? You may find it's not possible being a different laptop, parts for one are made to fit into that case and not a different brand. You couldn't match the connectors on the IBM's motherboard to another brand's screen for one thing.

    My computer is immaculate, however I sort of just want a different case.

    And I gave you a reason this won't work. Laptops are not like desktops so you can just change cases when you want. The parts for one brand won't work with the cases or parts, ie, screen for another.
