After the motherboard on my old laptop died out, I was able to salvage the processor (i7-2670QM) and 8 GB of memory. The processor is good, and will fit barebone machines with the G2 socket (ivy bridge/sandy bridge). So I thought I would be able to buy a cheap barebone laptop that I could transfer the parts to. So far I have only found listings that are too expensive or out of stock.
Does anyone know about any sites or shops that sell barebone machines, especially MSI whitebooks?
