So I've built a few desktops, but now I need something more portable. I've heard of people putting together barebones laptop systems and I'd like to build my own, in order to customize it my way. This seems like a much harder and more expensive task than building a desktop so I'd like some help.

I'd like to know a good starting point - somewhere I can pick out everything I want (cpu, gpu, memory, blah blah blah). If you can link me a great site, that'd be awesome.

I'm more or less trying to make a budget-business-gaming-laptop that runs linux.

PS- if possible i'd like to get a keyboard that is backlit and preferably not slim like most laptops.

No I mean I want to avoid the labor charges and assemble it myself.
