You don't "build" laptops...you buy them pre-built and assembled.

Actually, a laptop is something you buy pre-built and assembled.

you can buy various parts if you want, but it will cost you alot.
for example you can buy parts of some 4 year old laptop on ebay
.
first buy motherboard it will cost you around 200-300$
next you have to buy casing, housing for exact motherboard you purchased. around 50$
next you have to buy cpu and cooling for exact motherboard model, around 50$ both
you have to buy RAM(ddr2 or ddr3) any will probably work ... around 40$ for 4GB
next you have to buy hard drive (around 50$)
LCD is around 60-70$(you will need to know which lcd is supported by that mbo.
lcd housing, probably around 30$.
various cables, flat, power, touchpad.... about 50$
keyboard ... about 30$
screws
DVD(if you need it) 20$
LCD inverter(if needed) 20$
power supply 20$
maybe various usb boards and something 40$
wifi card 20$
BT card 20$
price is around 800$ if you are lucky.
800$ for 4 year old laptop that will or will not work when you assemble it

I have seen and heard of others that operate little businesses that will assemble a laptop for you, given the specs you desire.  Some options don't work well together and others don't fit in the space limitations.  I was able to get two of the last Lenovo units, before they loaded WIN8 in everything, got a laptop, Intel i7, 2GB video, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD,  four channel audio, HDMI output for just over $450. USD.  I paired it with the same specs on a Lenovo desktop for $400.  The LT has the 17 inch widescreen display, good enough for HD.  Very happy with both units, first units I've ever bought.   All my others were built.

But that does not answer the OP's question. His question asks what are the requirements? I would say that the requirements are money to buy the parts and a strong desire to do it.
