Laptop-desknote case?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, I am really really interested in putting together a custom, I mean totally custom. laptop, or desknote. Unfortunately I don't think anyone makes cases that would even remotely fit what im looking for. I Would like to use Desktop components, but im flexible. I can't be the only one who wants a resonabley priced portable machine for gaming and graphics. however I have been searching and I am yet to come up with anything other than a "Barebones" proprietary P.O.S Any thoughts?

Heck I just want a laptop sized case that I can mod into fitting pc components.

Am I dreaming?

What do you mean? You want a laptop case, that you can fit a computer of desktop compents in? Well, if thats what you want, it is a bit of a dream, as a normal size motherboard is already bigger then a whole laptop, even a MicroATX is too big. Then a videocard, any decent videocard will be 8" long or so, and need a pci-e slot. Then a harddrive, cd drive, heatsink, and a battery...all in even a 17" laptop? Naw, dude sorry not possible. Your best bet is a Shuttle

Not exactly what I meant. I basically want to custom build a laptop pc, not neccessarily the full sized components just true customization, meaning mobo and up.

Ah, well, there are a few websites that sell like the barebones, but thats really as custom as its going to get unless you want to get into some HEAVY modding.
