✔ Best Answer
No it is not practical even if it might be feasible.

Generally laptops are unique to each product. Motherboard and daughterboards fit only in their products.

There are some sites that will custom configure a laptop for you, but as jefro said, building your own isn't practical.

"what is the best motherboard for gaming/media/work?"

We'd need more info. How much would you be willing to spend? You said "best of the best" so I assume you'd be willing to spend at least $5000? Because the best Core i7 CPU costs over $1000, the best graphics card (GeForce GTX 690) is about $1000, & a large (512GB) SSD is about $500. That's 1/2 the $5K budget & there's still a LOT more hardware on the shopping list.

"...is building a laptop feasable?"

As above, not really...

"...and what is the best motherboard for gaming/media/work? I'm looking to go with the best of the best so that in 2 years im not buying a new computer again"

As riider mentions, it depends on what you're willing to spend (you can plunk down $10,000 and still not fill a wish-list). Also, the best machine for gaming may not necessarily be the best for media and/or work. Possibly even more important, is what you're really doing with it. Loading up (and then unloading) a lot of software will tend to bog down the registry, and there are few registry cleaners that are both effective and safe. I use machines on a daily basis that are over 12-years old and they still perform quite well for what I need them to do. Of course your needs will be different and even the "best of the best" still may not do you 2 years. Just something to consider when you're tabulating-up your wish list...
