A barebone laptop is an undressed laptop without Windows or OS, usually with only a laptop case, motherboard and display. Barebone laptops need to be equipped with components such as; processor, graphics card, memory, storage media, keyboard, WiFi and last but not least the operating system (OS). The advantage of the barebone notebook is that you can make your own choice of components to be used in the laptop. In many cases, you can even reuse parts from your current or defective laptop.
Why a barebone laptop?
Barebone laptops are cheaper
The barebone laptop is usually cheaper than the ready-made laptops from well-known brands such as Asus and HP. These types of laptops are cheaper to buy because you can choose the components yourself. You also choose the operating system and the barebone models are standard delivered without an expensive Microsoft license.
