Re: [opensuse] offtopic: laptop repair

Alright, after a decade or more of routinely carrying a laptop around
I just broke my first screen.

It's for a Dell XPS L502X.

Looks like I can spend anywhere from $60 to $300 to replace it. (At
$300 it may be smarter to replace it?)

It looks like the 2 basic options are buying a complete lid with the
screen and bezel already toghether, or I can buy just a screen.

I'm reasonably handy with tools, so I'm wondering what the smart thing
is for me to do. Any advice?

Once you have the lid off, replacing the screen is an extra 10 minutes of work.

I would definitely go for just replacing the screen.




On my own, I will likely order this one from Newegg:

Any gotcha's I should be aware of?


Just find a repair manual in PDF form for that line of model variants


Thanks
Greg
