Barebone Laptops?

Fri Mar 05, 2004 9:02 pm

This may sound a little unusual, but...

Are there any laptop sellers where you buy the unit with just the CPU/mobo/integrated video/CD-rom... MINUS the the OS, memory, and harddrive?

Purchasing and installing the OS, memory, and harddrive separately would save a lot of money (at least $225), as this is often where retailers gouge on prices.
