Basically I bought this laptop last year for college. It was lightweight and a good deal with the A10 upgrade. Today, of course a couple weeks past the warranty's last day, the hinge just snapped out of the bezel. Basically everything is intact and fully functioning, but now I have this fragile computer with the internal hinge sticking out. This is all from just normal usage - opening and closing the laptop. I honestly have no clue how to approach this. Should I try to fix this or send it to some local PC repair shop? Should I try to sell the laptop to someone (although unless I can get ~$300 I can't really upgrade). This semester is rather MATLAB heavy so I really need a laptop for campus but I can't dish out more than a couple hundred at the moment. Any suggestions?
