Thread Starter 
as in title...I'm looking for a barebones system. I want something that is between 14.4 and 15.6" screen, with decent resolution (better than 720p) and good portability. I'm strongly considering going barebones, but have no idea where to buy one.

alternatively, would it be easier just to buy a good computer with crappy processor, RAM, Hard Drive, etc. and go from there?

Never thought that really existed but if it does it's actually exactly what I'm looking for.
