Hellos guys, quick question: does anyone know where one van buy a laptop motherboard?
Long story: I saw people using motherboards from laptops with broken screens for a desktop build. I have since a few weeks been following second hand sites hoping to get a good deal on a gaming laptop with broken keyboard or such, but it seems that most people don’t sell it there or only sell what is left over after taking everything out they can. So I thought about buying just a laptop motherboard with the cooling system. But I can’t seem to find a site that provides them.
Why would I want a desktop with laptop motherboard? Because I don’t have space for a regular desktop on or near my desk. It is a build in desk, so cooling would largely be affected also. A laptop is far more easy to hide away, on the back of a monitor or such. And if I look at a custom gaming All In One or custom gaming mini desktop such as the Pudget Echo Pro, than those things cost as much as a alienware laptop, than I am talking about the i7 7700 vs the i7 7820HK (that dell overclocked) and a GTX1060 vs a GTX1070M so a bit less processor performance and a bit more gpu performance when choosing for a laptop. And if I could get only the motherboard, than that would be cheaper.
I would like to combine it with a touchscreen monitor, aka making my own surface studio with better performance
