Hello Pine64 community!

Can some of you please suggest a website and/or book for building a laptop or tower from scratch?

Mini-thanks

@SeeMossRun This is a very open-ended question. Please be more specific.

Perhaps this community is too advanced.  The question is straight-forward.  The OP seeks resources and instructions for assembling a computer from component parts.  The poster has no such experience . . .

It is still a very open ended question. Yes, a guide could be recommended - but for what type of computer? A gaming rig? Photo editing? Web browsing and office tasks? What budget?

I would suggest you do a search on YouTube for "How To Build A PC" - you can add the type as another keyword if you have a specific need - and you will find an endless number of videos from the likes of 'Linus Tech Tips', 'IGN' , 'JayzTwoCents', etc, etc... which will walk you through assembly. Some will also explain why the varrious parts were selected.

As far as building a laptop from scratch, that doesn't really happen... you can customise one from a curated list of options, but I'm not aware of being actually able to *build* one.

The question is not simple, depending on what you are asking. For example:

* If you're looking to build a normal PC, LinuxTechTips could be a good starting point: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...4578XfgJm_

* If you're looking for some 'DIY' laptop but don't want to build your own hardware, checkout something like a Pi-Top: https://www.pi-top.com/products/pi-top-3

* If you're looking for an open source laptop that you can do your own hacking to, checkout the Pinebook Pro: https://www.pine64.org/pinebook-pro/

* If you're looking to build a laptop from scratch, you're limited to whatever guides you can find online and you will definitely need to do some hardware yourself.

It's not clear what your goal is, so it's not obvious whether you are asking your question in the right place.
