Standard build laptop: possible?
I am getting fed up with the change of model that seems to happen every few months with laptops. We have bought same make and model series over the last two years, but individual model changes to the series mean that we don't get exactly the same spec each time. Now the new series has been redesigned so that dimension is slightly wider and power socket is on side, not back, which is causing us some issues with charging cabinets.
Is it possible to get a manuafcturer to build a laptop to your spec, with reasonable allowance for changes in chipsets, O/S etc? On a recent FITS Practitioner course, one of the Network Managers was saying they did this, but I didn't get a chance to ask how it was done. Anyone done this on here, and if so how big an order would you have to place to get this to happen?
