Barebones laptops?

Post by brucedeluxe » Tue Sep 27, 2005 6:14 am

Does anyone know a good website for purchasing barebones laptops? You know... laptops without memory, CPU, expansion cards, battery, hard drives..... just basically the motherboard and the case itself?

I remember a little while back there were some SWEET Asus barebones, but I can't find anywhere that sells them anymore. I currently have a Dell 700m and want to trade out the crappy Dell case and transfer all the components in it into a way sweeter system.

Thanks guys!

From my expierence not one online store carries all the chassis. If you find the chassis you would like to get let us know and we will help you find a retailer and get the best pricing.

http://www.directron.com/laptopbarebone.html

Those are the only two shops that carry laptop barebones that I know of, I'm sure there are many more if you searched around a bit in Google.

Might the barebones you were refering to be the ASUS Z33A?
