    Does anyone know how/where or if you can buy a laptop without anything inside. I would like to build my own laptop but i want to put what i want inside of it and not mess around with an oem if at all possible

    That sort of part is not avalible. Noetbooks are so highly engineered to fit high performance PC parts into a very small space. Therefore, all laptop parts are proprietary, and are designed to fig together like a puzzle. There is no universal spec (like ATX for desktops) for laptops, so there are no universal parts for building laptops

    does that mean that you can't buy laptop cases, to make a custom built laptop?
