OK, where do you think you're going to find a barebones laptop then? It's not like building a desktop where you can go just about anywhere & select a case, motherboard, CPU, etc, etc.

You can have one custom built for you?

You could have/should have explained all this right from the start. Like I tried to explain, laptop components aren't readily available in the same way desktop components are. Home builders generally don't build laptops from scratch.

riider's first post was kind of a joke. I assume he meant what I was thinking. He asked you where you could get a barebone laptop. What I was thinking is there is no place that sells parts to make a laptop. To be polite he was like, is this a new site you see?

I have never seen any company that sells laptop components to common users. I know you could buy a lot of 1000 from many sources built to spec but a one of would cost way more than your price.

Laptops are not a build them yourself sort of deal. Only home/soho full sized computers are available normally to any builder/tinkerer.

There are companies that can custom make a laptop, even big name companies can offer some choices but no one sells them in kit form. There is no standard box, no standard battery, no standard power, some screens are similar but laptops are built to OEM specs only and not to a common standard.

Google is evil

I believe that this is really just a 'if this was possible' scenario, I doubt that a college would actually ask students to purchase over $3000.00 worth of equipment for a class project. Being theoretical means that he really just needs to find the 'best' list of 'wants' by picking the best components that can be used in a laptop. It really would not matter if it needed to have a 20 cell battery to run for 30 minutes, be 1 1/2 inches thick, and weigh over 10 pounds, because no one will actually be building it. Just pick the fastest 3rd gen i7 quad CPU, the best available distinct mobile Graphics 'card', two large SSD's, 32GB DDR3 1600MHz (or better) memory a BluRay player, and any other component advertized on the top end gaming and performance laptops. Of course USB3, SATA3, eSATA3, DVI, mini HDMI, and any other fast input/output that remotely might be needed.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
