is it possible to build a laptop for under 350 us dollars? Answered

hi i was considering building a laptop but my price range $350 is quite small


No, I don't think so. You could put a mini-ITX system for less than that, but not in a laptop form factor. At one point I made a system in an ammo box, knowing that I can always find a monitor anywhere I am working, fun, eclectic, comment provoking etc etc but, to be honest, I'd rather use the ThinkPad SL500 I'm typing this on.

You could buy an old one on E-Bay for less than half that even if you have to add memory and a new battery.

You could probably buy a refurb. for that.

You could buy a brand-new Netbook for that.
