agreed. and it also turns out cheaper building one.


You can't build one yourself, read the forum topic.

Anyways, I have a HP Pavilion Tablet PC. I like it and it does what I need it to do. I just dislike Vista. By the time they work out the bugs, a new window os will come out.


Lol, so you've made the same mistake as me, you bought a Vista computer.

- You can just install Windows XP on it.


I have vista on my Dell and it works fine. It's simply that the idiots selling computers are installing Vista onto every new computer whether it has the capability to run Vista properly or not.

I highly doubt any normal person have the tools or time to build their own laptop, not worth the effort.

Company wise, Asus > all.


Don't you have a screwdriver? Thats all the tools it takes. You just need to buy parts and put them together. As for time, it only takes 1-3 hours depending on the parts. For you computer is probably a magical box full of elves who make it work. So if you don't know what you're talking about don't state your oppinion and embaress yourselve.



You make it sound easy. First lets see where you are actually going to GET the individual laptop parts. I doubt newegg, tigerdirect or larger online stores sells laptop shells or mobos or processors or heatsinks or all that good stuff. And then considering the COST, time and money, why bother putting something together thats not gonna save you the time and effort. Laptops aren't the same as desktops genius. I'm using a desktop I built myself but anybody who can read can put together a desktop.

So genius letsee where and how you are going to find and build a laptop thats worth the time and effort.

Seriously computer brands are overrated. You pay a lot of extra money for a name and it won't work as good as the one you assembled yourself. I had an HP computer before and now I've got a new computer which I've built myself. I has the same amount of RAM, HDD, the same processor and an equivallent video card but it is twice as fast as the HP I had, just because I've picked parts from different companies so that they would be more compatable. And I've saved $500.

Smaller online stores often sell more parts and cheaper then large ones you just have to wait an extra week for shipping. I have built a few custom laptops for my friends, and they ended up saving about $700 each. Just because you are too lasy to search for parts doesn't mean they aren't there. Newegg, tigerdirect? Please! You only know the names of online shops that advertise a lot. And from your coment I doubt you actually built your desktop yourself. Most likely you just picked the parts and the store built the computer for you. Othervise you would know that building a laptop is only a little harder than building a desktop.
And I guess you have never heard of Google either?

I find it imposible to argue with you since you don't know how to put parts into a barebone. This is about my laptop you moron.

Smaller online stores cheaper? Bullshit. Larger stores buys directly from manufactures for much lower than anyone else can get them. The price shows. Give me links and prices for individual piece in a laptop. Then I might admit that you are not a complete dumbass. Ebay will do as well since thats the most common place you can find mobos ripped FROM OTHER LAPTOPS. How does from my comment shows I didn't build it? Want a copy of my receipt?

I order all my stuff off newegg because it is the cheapest around with professional service. I can shop around a bit but I won't save much and I know I'll be safe fast and secure with newegg.

Btw, barebone isn't building a computer, its just plug and chug. Even a 4 year old knows what shape goes into what slot.

ROFL. You're like telling me which brand name should I buy.
Seriously when you buy some tech produce, it's not like buy clothes. You need to know the specification, what's so good about it and stuff like that.... Since you asked what BRAND of laptop/notebook is good, my opinion would be a MACBOOK.

I have a 2GHz Turion X2, 2GB Ram, 5400 rpm hard drive. It's double Vista's recommended system requirements. I think Microsoft is the idiot.

Yeah I don't think smaller stores are able to sell things cheaper then larger stores, they simply can't afford to buy as much to be eligable for bulk discounts. They usually have to go threw distributors which buys in bulk then sell at wholesale. Larger stores can simply deal directly with manufacturers to pay what distributors pay.

and to clarify even further, you can not build your own laptop. Laptop are made in confined areas and parts have to be exactly fitted together in a way to allow maximum airflow in such confined areas. It's very impractical and if you attempt it, you'll probably end up with a shady desktop instead.
