Why is it difficult to build your own laptop?

By: William Wong


Making your own laptop is difficult or near impossible because any part you buy online like the motherboard, disk drive, hard drive, and etc are not going to fit into any laptop shell. Companies use their own parts to make the laptops we use today. Its possible to build your own laptop if you get the companies specific parts but it will be really difficult to find and not worth searching for the items while you can just buy a laptop from the company that made them.

The video has more detailed information about why you cant build your own laptop. It mostly talks about the company modifies the parts to fit the laptop. CPU and RAM are normally soldered on to the laptop to conserve space, but some companies use a special method to stick the CPU and RAM into the laptop. People try to make their laptops stunning on the outside but that can really affect the inside of the laptop like heating issues, adding more things can increase in weight, etc. So you are better off buying your own laptop instead of making one.
