    afaik building laptops is simply not a viable option. Not that its much harder, its just harder to get parts, and there really isnt a lot you can do with them. Not to mention it wont be much cheaper than just buying one anyways.

    ^ Pretty much that. Only a few companies give you the option to customize a laptop to the extent that one could call it "building a custom laptop", if you're actually thinking of buying parts yourself, getting a custom case and stuff then imo you're looking for a desktop replacement in which case I would simply recommend getting a desktop.

    Otherwise just get a decent ultramobile laptop with Nvidia optimus or something, probably the best "hybrid" solution you'll see for a while (unless you're not interested in the laptop-ish aspect of laptops and you just want an all-in-one PC).

    What exactly do you intend to do with it? I only track laptops series that are made to do their job as a laptop - imo if a laptop can't survive 4-5 hours of normal work without being recharged it's worthless

    Not really, you're just restricted to certain components depending on which mobo / case (or whatever you want to call the base) you get

    By "gaming" do you mean "I want to be able to play BF3 with reasonable eye candy" or "I just want to play CA and CF" and does "school work" mean "I will write essays in my bed for an hour or two" or "I will go to school and have my PC turned on for 6 hours straight"

    Protip: never buy Alienware. And the alienware should, with the low-power config drain under 20W probs, leaving you with around 3 hours per charge

    Imo, if you want to use something in school, get a proper ulv laptop that isn't made to be flashy.
