Title: without motherboard might be tricky
Post by: amigabill on December 26, 2014, 02:36:19 AM
It may make sense to choose a whitebook/barebones style ODM system in a similar fashion as some small studio resellers do, buying from as close to ODM as possible. Then one normally customizes with a particular CPU, OS, memory, HD etc. and you could skip some of those things, but have to swap out the motherboard. Perhaps then resell the motherboard as a repair part on Ebay or someplace suitable for such things.

We are already in contact with an ODM that could provide us only one classic 15,6 notebooks model without the mobo, but only for a short limited time, so more options are welcome, people could help us searching others ODM. Your suggestion is welcome, we have already though at that solution in case we will have no others options...
