I would go with the cheapest option. If they charge you an arm and a leg to repair it, then do it your self. I wouldn't buy a new one unless it's more then the screen that's broken. By that I mean if the main board is broken, but it sounds like it's only the screen that's broken.

Buy a touchscreen and replace the original screen!

Let them repair it. It might not be the cheapest option, but usually the safest.

You could also buy new screen yourself, and bring it with the laptop to them. They should charge around €30,- or $30/40 for placing it.

If you really know what you're doing, and if you've had your Netbook open before, then there's no harm in placing it yourself. It should take around half an hour to screw it open, remove the old one, place the new one, and screw it back together.

If you're really new at it, but still want to do it yourself, i suggest you take photo's of everything you do. Why? That way it's easy to retrace your steps.

If you want i could post a quick manual on how to do it?
