I want to start my own computer company building laptops

Specs: Windows 7
I want to start my own computer company, because I have this computer ideal that I think could work. So I want to know how do you build a laptop? If possible could you tell me how to build one from the model to the software. I'm willing to read whatever, I just need to start on it, and get a direction going. If you could help me with this questio that would be great. Thank you.

Whoa, the laptop's already been invented. You don't want to waste your time trying to reinvent it. Is that your business idea? Maybe you want to improve on the laptop? Then go out and buy the best there is and work with it, take it apart and decide how you can make it better. You and/or the people you hire will need some EE degrees. Most people who would do that work for an established company for 15 or 20 years thereby gaining experience in the field and then leave to start their own business.

As far as just building a laptop--it's not like building a desktop PC. Except for the drives, laptop hardware is very proprietary. You can't just grab some laptop case and pop in any motherboard. You have to put someting in it that's made for that specific case.

You might do better with software, web development, phone apps, etc. That's where the money is. Facebook and ebay succeed because of software.

So don't redo what's already been done. Improve on it or find a niche to fill that no one's noticed yet.

You might like to read this Wikipedia article about Dell Computers. Michael Dell started out in 1984 when personal computer where in their infancy and laptops didn't exist.

Unless you have a few million dollars to invest in hardware development, software would be a better option

Hey guys thanks for your comments and they are all extremely helpful. I have to work really hard to understand the software I only have an ideal of a computer model that hasn't been created yet and what I've researched it's very much possible. So I guess I would just have to work on getting that funding somehow. I have time, I'm a freshman at Harvard University.

Newer, better computers are still using the same basic technology. They're just faster and with higher capacites. Now if you're looking to invent a reasonablly priced quantum computer, then you'll have something.
