How ugly is that?! I called an electronic repair place and was quoted between $200-$250 to replace the LCD panel. Gosh, that's half the cost of the computer!!! I was going to wait until January to have it fixed, but I just can't look at this ugly crack that long. I reached out to a friend today and after taking the screen apart myself (YES, me) I was able to give him the code and order a new one off of EBay for $60!!! YES!!!!!! It will be here Saturday. I wonder how hard it will be to replace the panel? I'll let you know!!!
The moral of the story: Don't leave your laptop on the floor!
