When I contacted Lenovo they would not sell me a replacement LCD screen, they said I had to send it to a TX repair depot at a cost of $182.00 + S/H both ways. To R and R the screen would not require that I had attended MIT, the directions are in the user guide.

or sell the broken machine as sparepart and buy a new one , its more efficient ... instead of repair due service in this case...

The LCD & Lid are often replaced as an assembly and for simplicity, the depot has tiered billing rates (flat fees) rather than doing a "parts & labor" type of billing.
Customers that have a regular S10 would typically have the depot option as we don't sell parts for the IdeaPads individually. The S10e, which KalveinKlein linked to, was a commercial model, primarily intended for education markets in the US, and support for it does include individual parts and it is serviced through a different repair center. Individual parts could be ordered for it by calling 800-388-7080 in the US. On these models, (and I know the S10 is noted on the page) the individual components inlcuding the LCD itself are listed seperately.
As the S10 and S10e are very similar mechanically, clever customers could order parts for the S10e and use them to repair out of warranty S10's. Given the pricing models, this might be a good alternative for things like the keyboard - I've not priced out all the parts to see if there are savings vs the quoted repair prices for all the components. Also, as this is not what was intended in our service model, I can't officially recommend this approach as a solution.
