Ok, this might not be the correct place for this thread, but it was the closest I found. I'm dabbling a bit with HTPCs, and I'm trying to make mine as small as possible. Sure, mITX is ok, but it doesn't reduce the hight of the box. So what I'm wondering is if it's possible to buy a motherboard and CPU for a laptop and use it as a desktop.

I find sites such as this:

But I can't seem to figgure out what motherboards are good enough for this project. The minimum I want is a Neo-platform, but a Mobility Radeon HD4xxx would be great aswell.

Or am I forced to buy a complete laptop if I want to do a project such as this?

I don't see why not, however you'd need a custom enclosure etcetera.

Great thank you. I'll push forward on the idea then. The enclosure is offcourse an issue, but I'll give it a shot.Think I'll first need to create the platform, and then start focusing on the enclosure.
