    How much is it? Doesn't look that hard to me...just a little costly. A new screen and clutch is all it appears to need.

    In some cases, it's cheaper to buy a broken, used laptop and fix than it is to buy a used laptop that works.

    That would be a pretty big risk...It looks pretty beat; I wouldn't spend more than $200 on it.

    Probably needs a lot of work, and a lot of money...I wouldn't bid on it

    Screens are extremely expensive. Almost as much as the machine itself.

    I read that you can buy a screen for around $150 or so, and fix it yourself

    Uh. Ifixit has them for about $600-$700. You might be able to find a cheaper screen on Fleabay if you want.
