Alright, so, my mom told her friend that I build computers. I have only built one and it was a desktop.

Now her friend is asking me to build her a laptop with wireless capabilities. All I need to know is, how much more (or less) difficult is it to build a laptop as compared to a desktop. How difficult it is to implement wireless, and where to get the parts.

Thanks in advance.

You really don't build laptops. No standardized parts (motherboards, cases etc.) make it tough.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

What you could do is recommend several decent models and offer to help get her set-up on her new laptop when it arrives.

First figure out her budget and her usage plan (e.g hardcore gaming vs light websurfing) and then from there start researching laptops.
OS: 1. Slackware Linux........................... 2. Windows XP Home Edition
Mobo: Asus P5N-D.................................GFX : Nvidia Geforce 8800GTS 512MB

HDD1: Maxtor 80GB SATA II Hard drive.............HDD2: Western Digital 40GB IDE
Case: Antec Gamer 300 case.......................PSU : Corsair HX620 620W - Modular
