    Let it be a lesson to everyone, don't monkey around with a 10 pound medicine ball when your laptop is on the floor beside you. :(

    Duct tape an LCD screen over it and connect it to the monitor output.

    Good as new, but slightly less portable.

    It still works actually, the crack was on the inside, the outside part of the screen is still in tact. Theres just a bunch of big black cracks all over the place.

    Its really annoying because I had just been planning on buying a ps3... and while I could afford it, I just don't feel comfortable spending 1000 bucks (probably more) right now.

    Oh well.

    On the upside, it was getting long in the tooth, but it had served me well for many a year. I'm quite certain that any bargain basement 400 dollar laptop I could buy would be considerably better, in pretty much every way.
