Hello, this site helped me get rid of some malware just a few days ago, but now my sister is having the computer problems. She broke her screen, and does not have a lot of cash to fix it. I have no clue how feasable it is to fix, perhaps someone can advise.
She says, "My computer is a 15.4 inch macbook pro with a glossy screen. It has the silver keys, not the black, it is a 2008. The mac store wanted 1350.50 to fix it!!"
Does anyone have any words of comfort I can offer her, such as a lead on a cheap replacement part?

I hate to say it, but LCD panels are expensive. The 1350 quoted by the Apple store was probably parts AND labour included... but the panel itself directly from Apple is probably in the 1000 dollar range. I don't personally trust panels that come with a price point of 200 - 400 dollars, especially if the Apple one itself is a higher cost for a good reason. Be that as it may, if your sister is strapped for cash then the two links provided may provided a solution. Best of luck!

If its just for music / internet then buy a cheap $400 Windows machine.

If your one of them people who think Windows machines just get virus all the time , then your wrong.

If you have good anti-virus/anti-spyware/good firewall , you'll be fine.
