My son has one of these - the case is coming to bits - the hinges are broken, the plastic has cracked and the whole thing is not in good shape.
But it works fine -it was an expensive laptop in its day and he cannot really afford a new one of similar spec. Is there anywhere I can get a case - or a broken machine I can cannibalise?
Grateful for any help

Ta. I did look at ebay but with no luck yet.
Domino - do you know of anywhere like that for Lenovo laptops, spares / repairs or parts etc ?
Got work laptops ranging from T400 laptops ( 6475-2Y2 / 6475-9Y4 ) , T410 ( 2537-D88 ), T420 ( 4236-CP7 ) and T430 ( 2349-KQ1 )
We always need to get replacement hard drives / screens and sometimes other parts etc

Most hard drives, cd drives, screens etc are generic. Take the old one out and get the part number off them (screens are easy to get hold of).
Plastic casing is the worse thing to get hold off, you need proper suppliers for them, some keybaords too.
These guys (although having a shonky website) are pretty good for the tricky lenovo bits: IBM laptop spare parts, IBm laptop parts, Lenovo laptop spares, Lenovo laptop spare parts, parts for IBm laptops
FYI: there are UK based Dell spares specialists too - but they've always been a real PITA to deal with in my experience, YMMV
Thanks - but the cost of a new casing is beyond his means at the moment, I think. The ebay one is not quite the same model - does anyone know if the cases are all the same for the Inspiron 17Rs? I would suspect so but I am not sure
