Are there any online laptop manufacturers that lets you customize a laptop any more? Or a smaller shop that would do custom laptop builds? (and support them).
When I bought a Dell Precision workstation laptop 5 years ago you could do this. That was a good laptop but I wouldn't buy a Precision now - in some cases the new range is actually worse than gaming laptops for professional CGI work... which makes them hilariously overpriced. But you can't customize anything with Dell's website, its just useless, I even tried online chat and they wouldn't upgrade the 256SSD to 512 on an Inspiron Gaming laptop.
So keen to hear anybody else's recommendations on what to do in this situation... there are certain minimum specs I need but I'm flexible on the brand.
