Crafting the perfect lap-friendly computing companion is a delicate balance between weight and performance. Add powerful processors, expect hefty returns.

It's essentially a website that allows you to custom-order your smartphone's appearance and specifications, much like you would when purchasing a laptop. (There's a small catch with the local release, however.)
