Because of the cost. Was thinking I could build one for cheaper rather than buying a stock computer from a major retailer. And it's a good brain teaser project and helps you learn new things.fnevaevaI guess as a brain teaser or hobby it would be ok, but regarding costs...laptops have come down in price so much in the last 3 years it's not worth the time and effort building one.

Building a custom system saves you money with a desktop, but considering the proprietary hardware you need for a laptop, and the relative rarity of said hardware, I would think building it yourself wouldn't actually save you money, when it comes to a laptop. Would probably cost you more.
