Hey Folks!

I want to purchase a laptop (best bang for my buck) where I can scrap the stock hardware and add in my own hardware: most likely an i7 6th gen+ CPU, 16GB ram, SSD both sata & PCIe compatible. Video resolution of 1080P will suffice.

Any suggestions?

:welcome:   bowen.marvel.koto,

 

Why not just purchase a notebook that meets your requirements without needing to be upgraded, upgrading the RAM and adding an SSD can be done quite easily on an appropriate notebook but when it comes to CPUs you can have problems two of which are the BIOS may need to be updated so that the MB will recognise the new CPU once it has been fitted and some CPUs are soldered into the MB and would need an approved technician to remove and replace the CPUs.

 

both sata & PCIe compatible.

 

 

Not sure what you mean by the above as notebooks do not have SATA ports or PCI- e GPU slots only desktop or AIOs do, HDDs and SSDs slot directly into place and dedicated graphics chips on high end notebooks fit into the MB the same as the CPU does.

 

Example notebook here has a PCI-e type SSD to which you may be referring to.
