Can I build a kick@$$ laptop???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
That's the question. Money is no object. I'd like some info on how and where to procure the necessary hardware to build a 21", using a desktop CPU (preferably a Q6600) if possible. From what I've gathere ASUS makes a barebones that will accommodate up to an E6800 dual core. If that's what I have to run, then so be it. Let me be perfectly clear, money is not a problem. I think the acquisition and implementation of the necessary hardware is going to prove to be difficult. Would someone try to prove me wrong :-)? Thanks for any input in advance.
P.S., I have 4 high end system builds under my belt in just a little over 2 years now and I'm fairly confident that this project is doable.

Take a look a look at Clevo barebones. They are the only laptops I believe that are sold with desktop parts.
