    shits only 6 months old, so I'm paying the 180$ to let a professional to do it tomorrow, I have bad luck with laptop repairs and I'm not interested in taking any chances.

    I'm using it now though, got it hooked up to a 19inch LCD I had laying around, everything else works, just the screen, I'm happy about that.

    go on Ebay and order a new lcd and bezel if that's cracked too. Look on Youtube for instructions on how to do it yourself and save $100

    $180!!!!!!!!! JESUS, Is he gonna do your fucking laundry too? amazon.com don't be a lazy ass. save yourself the $$ on the tech bullshit.Its easy as fuck to replace, 4-6 screws on the bottom and a couple on top. After that there is a 40pin cable that connects to the bottom part of the laptop. 30 minutes tops to replace.

    no cracks, but there are some spaces between that and the screen, I'm assuming it will be fine when they put it back together
