Hey guys, the right hinge on my Lenovo G570 is broken. Right now it's pretty much lifting the top casing of my computer and my monitor is sitting askew. I tried calling Lenovo to get an estimate, but they told me I had to send it in and pay for shipping as well as an $80 dollar processing fee. I'm just curious as to how much parts and labor might come out to. What have you guys recieved for estimates?

Welcome to the Forums.
The repair cost will depend on the parts that are needed to be replaced. If for example, the hinge, and the plastic part that holds the hinge (base cover) are broken, the service centers to replace the following parts:
So say you have the hdmi base cover+hinge model+one hour labor (say $25), then you're probably looking at a $85 quote (shipping / taxes excluded). Note that this is just an example. The reason why the tech. ask you to send it in is because the person in charge of the repair needs to see the damage and quote the necessary parts for the repair.
Hope this gives you an idea.
