Is it just the top layer of glass? Does the screen still come on and does touch screen work?

I believe if you call acer the repair will cost $199+ tax

You could try a repair shop maybe local to you

Other options is to sell it for parts and buy a new one

Digitizer is probably damaged. So unless a local shop can do it cheaper acer is going to charge you the $199
