my X301's screen has sponteneously cracked, leading to the a patch of discoloured LCD and a line on the display. It's out of warranty so I'm going to have to pay for a new one, as while it's usable at the moment I'd think it's going to get worse. (I'm in the UK by the way).
I hadn't mishandled it, although it happened after packing it away and carrying it around, so normal train/tube bumping around I guess.
Approached Ace Support who seem reputable for screen replacements, and they were helpful but said they'd have to get the part from somewhere in Europe, and it would cost £410 just for the screen. Just wondered if anyone has had this problem, and whether there was a company who have the part in the uk and can do it cheaper?
