Been on HTG for about a year now and many builder questions. Not a builder myself but have a question. Seems most builders are gamers and build towers. Has anyone built a laptop?

Joe,

Most Builders are just ordinary folks who enjoy electronics and like to build high performance custom machines.

It is true that a lot of Builders are young gamers now but many of us elders (over 60) have been Builders since the advent of home computers and really never purchased OEM machines except for may be a Commodore 64 or so. (LOL) :) :)

As for Laptop Builds, I've never seen many components or kits advertised as they are so proprietary in nature.

Home built laptops do exist. And some are very nice. Have a search through,

I have built a couple radios, RC cars, and a multi meter. All from kits. Outside of the pure (sic.) enjoyment, most cost about the same as store bought. And, no warranty. But, all were fun to build. May try a computer build one day but, probably from a kit. At least at first.
