    That should be repairable rather easily as long as no electrical boards were snapped.

    Otherwise, you're going to have to give us some specifics if you want help finding a laptop. Lenovo T-61's are always my go-to recommendation for a good, cheap DJ laptop.

    Well the wires that lead to the screen are severed, the base of the computer's shell has a huge crack in it and the ports one side don't look like they will be working anytime soon, so i figure it will be cheaper to buy a new laptop as that one only cost us 400 on sale.

    I've saved all of the internals, including the graphics card, so i just need a computer with a processor strong enough to handle Serato and Ableton.

    Hmm. Yeah probably not worth salvaging then.

    Like I said, check out some Lenovo business machines. You're better off with a strong C2D processor over a low end i-series any day. And they have reasonable GPU's to boot.
