Foxconn to Release Two DIY Netbooks



+ Add a Comment


The only reason DIY laptops aren't big is because most of them are more like barebone systems. They should let me be able to choose the chassis/LED, battery, motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM and Hard drive. There has to be a standard too.



... has always been the complete lack of options.  By the nature of the beast, most of the hardware is already integrated into the motherboard or the chassis anyway.  All "DIY" notebooks get you is the opportunity to choose your own hard drive and RAM, and maybe a gpu or cpu, if you're lucky.  There just isn't the level of customizability of a desktop, to the end user, so why not just go for a complete solution instead of a half-assed attempt at DIY?
