I would not have thought it possible.
Perhaps Mark may be better served to acquire a scrap example and have a bit of practice to see how it goes before shelling out loads of money.

ocz have barebones laptops but there are only 3 or 4 components to add.

All computer suppliers tend to purchase a laptop carcass, be they Apple, Lenovo, Dell, HP etc.

The carcass will include the case, motherboard, screen & keyboard. All the supplier will add is CPU, RAM, optical drive and hard drive.

There are so many things that can go expensively wrong when building a laptop I wouldn't even start but if you do try one thing I would advise is that you make absolutely, positively 100% sure that the display you buy fits the case and is compatible with the graphics chipset on the motherboard.

When I did PC repair we would have 4 or 5 makes of each size & resolution screen, because some screens just wouldn't work with some chipsets...
