I've got the engineering skills and background  to design and build a circuit like that, but, frankly, switchers of that kind of rating are NOT things you do on the spur of the moment, and I really would agree with re-design and BUY one. If some one asked me, I'd decline the job. Switchers are EVIL things to work on !

You'll not get the parts for the price you can buy one for, and you certainly won't get ALL the parts you'll destroy experimenting with the design. Even the magnetics are a project in their own right.

If your goal is to save money, well you won't.  To make an inverter to supply 500 watts clean enough to power a laptop you'll end up spending more than you would pay for a good premade one.

In addition to that building your own you would not have the safeguards built-in that a production one would have.
