ha..that is exactly what I need..one of them Amish Laptops..:-) I took on a few laptops in my earlier years...The first thing I found out was the cost..out of sight..the second thing I found out was how hard it was to find the parts. the third thing I found out was I needed a lighted magnifier and my hands were to fat. The 4th thing I found out was that after all that it wasn;t as powerful..So I quit trying to fix or build laptops..I never ever really built one but I did do a few fix's!
