Claiming under travel insurance (long story) and they require an estimate i reckon their estimate will be the highest so more chance of them writing it off but would i need to pay for their estimate? tried phoning them no answeR!

well to be honest id imagine it would be pricey if going through a shop etc... including fitting was a samsung n130 netbook 7" use it for travel mainly but got cracked in turkey truth be told id imagine insurance will write it off

i reckon the screen will be around 80 for the genuine samsung screen and at least 40 to fit

If claiming through insurance and you need an estimate and have to pay for it then you can claim that money back also... pain in the ass I know but hey ho!

Easy to fit and if you have an excess on insurance maybe this is the way to go.

cheap as chips them m8 your excess is gonna be atleast £50 with insurance more than likely £100.

well does it take to fit the screen and whats the hourly rate? the cost of the screen above is a surprise.. as i had bought a new netbook (to go along with the 3 laptops i have lol) so had hoped the sammy would be a write off.... im guessing it could take 2 hours to do the job well just over an hour but that would be classed 2 hours im guessing its at least £35 an hour bringing it up to best part of £120/£130 for a netbook worth £180 im guessing they would write it off?
