Re: Laptop for parts
A replacement LCD panel for this laptop is ~$150 on eBay, and a keyboard can be had for ~$36.
So, for less than $200 you can restore that machine. It's still relatively new, make a great gift for a loved one.
If someone else were to purchase it, then they will pay a little more than $300, depending on location, and for a little bit more, they can get a new one with similar or better specifications (and a warranty, to boot).
