    Find out who makes the screen and do a general search for that to eliminate the "Apple" factor in pricing? I know Samsung makes the ACD's for Apple.

    If just the backlight is broken is could be as cheap as $20. If its damaged more than that replacement screens are a bit hard to find.

    ~450 for macbooks.

    Sometimes for PCs screen can upwards on 1000 because they are rare. You can search on craiglist and buy a broken macbook for abour 400 dollars.

    that broken macbook better be around $300 to even make it worth your time. you could always get a mini dvi out adapter and connect it to whatever screen you want, kinda ruins portability though

    the cracks on the computer you can feel with your finger so is it going to be an expensive repaire. If I ask for 300$ (she's asking 400$) would it be worth it to get it fixed?
