I've built quite a few desktops and was looking into building a laptop. Just wondering how much harder it is.

Very few people have a barebones available. I believe ASUS has one but it will wind up costing you more than if you just pick out a nice one.

I too wanted to build my own laptop but quickly found roadblocks left and right. Laptop manufacturers want to (and need to) have full control over what goes into it, for system compatability as well as to not exceed the power available.

You can continue to check around and if you do find some cheaper ones, send me a PM please.
