    thats the extent of the "damage" looks so bad because I had to remove some plastic to get it to close, the actual hinge snapped due to heat from the laptop making the metal brittle.

    Does it have to be pretty? Just glue some shoelaces or other rope-like material to the based of the keyboard and the corners of the screen. ;)
