Building a custom laptop is a great option when available preconfigured models lack certain features or functions, or you just want a little more out of your system. You get exactly what you want and can tailor the system to how you’ll use it, whether for office activities, home and family use, playing games, or whatever.
Custom laptops are built on the same frames and with the same underlying technology as pre-built models, but can be modified to meet your specific needs by selecting optional processors, memories, hard drives, and so on, even a different operating system.
How Do I Order a Custom Built Laptop Online?
You’ll start by finding the brand and model type that’s right for you (say, a thin-and-light model, a hp 17.3″ model, or a 13.3″ 2-1 model with i7 CPU). From there, we offer a chance to “Build your own” or “Choose your specs.” At PConline365.com, you’ll be asked to choose the various options, which appear above the ADD TO CART button. These lists will change based on your selected product, as not every aspect of a system is configurable.
In general, you can expect to find options in these categories:
Memory: Add RAM (or different variations of it), so that you can multi-task and run more programs simultaneously.
Storage: Retain the standard magnetic hard drive or upgrade to a fast-booting solid-state drive (SSD).
Operating system: Upgrade to the latest, just-released OS – choose between “Home” and “Pro” versions.
Bloatware removal: Manufacturers fill your shiny new laptop, phone, or tablet with pre-installed applications to put an extra dollar in their pocket. You are left with bundles of 0useless programs taking up the already limited storage space. Windows 10 does come with a reasonably large amount of bloatware.

How to choose ram size:
4GB: Entry level memory that comes with even budget notebooks. Fine for basic Windows and Chrome OS usage. Internet browsing with few tabs, email, word processing, simple graphics programs and flash games, music and watching videos.
8GB: We recommend this for most people. This amount is enough for the user for the most of everyday tasks.Internet browsing, email, word processing, photo editing, video editing, graphics programs and gaming, multitasking.
16GB: When choosing RAM for pros (who often works in programs that use a lot of resources, such as Autocad, Adobe pack, 3DSMax etc.) Ideal for professional work and more demanding games. High performance gaming, multimedia editing, high-definition video, graphics design/3D modeling, intensive multitasking.
32GB and beyond: Enthusiasts and purpose-built workstations only.
How to choose hard drive
HDD VS SSD
Solid-state drives (SSD) and hard-disk drives (HDD) are the two main storage solutions available to consumers, and they each have their benefits. In its simplest form, an SSD is flash storage and has no moving parts whatsoever. As a result, they’re smaller and take up less space in a PC case, in some instances even mounting directly to the motherboard. SSD storage is much faster than its HDD equivalent.
HDD storage is made up of magnetic tape and has mechanical parts inside. They’re larger than SSDs and much slower to read and write.
Each of them is specialized for different tasks, but if you asked us to pick one over the other for your main system, our recommendation would be clear. The battle of SSD versus HDD was won long ago.
If you’re building a PC for any purpose, you’re going to want speed. If you only have HDD storage in your machine, then speed isn’t something coming your way. Windows will take longer to boot up, applications will take longer to load, and files will take longer to open and save.
Drive “speed” is predominantly focused on how fast they can read and write data. Because a solid-state drive has no moving parts, it’s able to read and write data infinitely faster than a hard drive. The real-world difference is most noticeable when you’re booting your computer or opening an application.
We upgraded a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 with a Core i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM from a 5,400 rpm hard drive to a 250GB SSD, and the time it took load Word 2016 dropped from 31.9 seconds to 1.8 seconds. Loading the Chrome browser went from 14 seconds to 1.1 seconds and Excel went from 19.9 seconds to 1.8 seconds.
SSDs also use less power than hard drives, because they don’t have to power any moving parts. The average SSD-enabled laptop we benchmarked lasted 7 hours and 9 minutes on the Laptop Battery Test, which involves continuous surfing over Wi-Fi. Hard-drive-powered laptops averaged only 5 hours and 43 minutes.
If you’re worried about your laptop breaking, you definitely want an SSD. SSDs are much more likely to survive a fall, because they don’t have hard drives’ delicate needles and platters.Hard drives, on the other hand, are much more vulnerable to physical damage due to their use of mechanical parts.
Laptops that come with SSD usually have just 128GB or 256GB of storage, which is enough for all your programs and a decent amount of data. However, users who have lots of demanding games or huge media collections will want to store some files in the cloud or add an external hard drive. Some gaming and workstation-class laptops offer the best of both worlds, having a fast SSD and a spacious hard drive.
The lack of storage may be a small hassle, but the increase in speed is worth the trade-off. If you can possibly afford it, 256GB is a lot more manageable than 128GB.
Our ultimate recommendation is to opt for a mixed system with HDD mass storage and an SSD boot drive for your Windows 10 install. This way you’ll get a balance of price, performance, and space, and you’ll have a well-rounded machine for all occasions.
