    ipod lcd repair?

    the lcd on my ipod nano (first gen) just gave out - half of the screen is not visible now, though the unit is still functional...

    i purchased this in September 2005 without any additional warranty/plans, so i'm probably SOL on trying to get it replaced for free.

    so, should i try to get it repaired? if yes, where would be a good place to go? or am i better off just to buy a new one?

    thanks in advance,
    bernard

    Try to get a quote on how much it would cost to repair. There are several apple products repair shop @ wanchai computer center. (wanchai MTR exit).

    also Causeway bay
    applecare hotline 2112 0099
    See if you can get a quote over the phone. (save you a trip)
    physical location:
    'Brilliant Ascent'
    Room 1703 Hang Lung Center, 2-20 Paterson Stret, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.

    IMHO, You would be better off selling the unit and buy a new one.
