I am a web developer and prefer the older laptops of yore, and I cannot find a current laptop that suits my needs as well as the one I have, however the one I have is getting outdated.
Since I can't find what I want anywhere, I am looking to have one custom built. Here are the specs I'm looking for:
4:3 resolution (non-widescreen SXGA or SXGA+).
Most ports on the back, not on the side.
Decent keyboard (not tiny arrow keys).
Intel i5 or i7.
4-8 GB of RAM.
Non-integrated video graphics (keeps Aero running fast).
14"-15" display (fits on my portable desktop).
Even if I can't get all of it, is there some place I can have something custom-made or modified? I've even thought about modifying my current model to fit a modern motherboard so I can't install a modern chip on it.
