Let's try to dissuade you.

Tell us about your past of building desktops. What you need to know is that laptops are very different. No standards as to motherboard factors and more.

Tell us why you want to build your own laptop.

As to parts, parts are all over the place. Just one thing. They don't fit together like desktops do.

So you now know.

There is no standard in laptop parts and you can't build a laptop from a dozen different makers like a desktop.

This project is a dead end so why not go buy a laptop?
