I want to buy an old crappy laptop at a decent price and basically upgrade it with a new dvd-rom drive, hard drive, etc. I have never built a laptop and was wondering how hard it is and where I would get parts, etc. I need all the information possible so if you guys could just post some really decent lengthy stuff that would be great. Thanks so much guys. Some of my individual questions are:

Where do I get the parts..I am assuming tigerdirect or newegg or somewhere like that.

All I am looking to do is to replace a few parts, not totally take everything out. I will probably give a ram upgrade, a faster dvd drive, better hard drive.

Thanks a lot guys.

I dont think you can find laptop parts to build a complete brand new laptop in stores, you will only find brand new laptop motherboards, custom laptop casings, laptop LCD panels, 2.5 inch hard drives, Mobile CPUs and Geforce Go 7800 GTX cards on ebay. :)
