Need laptop help
So last Tuesday, I was heading out to pick up @Creeperbane2 from Fountain Square. I always walk down there, seeing as it's about a half mile or so from my house. So as I get to the end of my walkway......I trip over a walnut. My backpack goes flying and hits the ground. I miss it as I hit the ground. So I pick it up and check my camera (It hit on the side it was on) and found it was okay, but never thought anything about my laptop. So I go about my business and never tried to use it until Wednesday. I tried to turn it on and was met with......a white screen with small black horizontal lines. I turn it off and on, same thing. So my screen is fucked. With that, I now face a question: try to get the screen fixed or get a new laptop altogether? If I get the screen fixed, how do I go about it? If I get a new laptop, what should I get? (looking for something cheap but with some upgrades like blu-ray compatibility, etc.) Need some help.
