    Laptop parts supplier?

    Hello,

    getting quite a few calls from people with dodgy laptops (motherboards or screens) Are there any UK websites for laptop parts at wholesale prices??

    I have had a look on ebay but the average price for a new screen is £140!!! surley the vendors (dell/sony/HP) have some sort of outlet for parts? I just can't find!

    Help.

    Laptops are uneconimical to buy and even more uneconomical to fix. If there was a cheap way to fix them, companies would lose out on selling you £200 - £300 warranties lol.

    You may find laptops being broken for spares (on ebay) but other than that everything on them is expensive.

    Best practice with laptops is buy them with a decent warranty and throw them away when they break

    There was a company that sold dell spare parts, my old company used them. It was based on them getting the old parts to refurb them etc.. but I just can't find them now.

    The other obvious problem with fixing them yourself is that they are so fiddly inside, I saw my old boss break more than he fixed by opening them up.

    What laptops are they?

    Have you tried LaptopSpares

    They may not fit your criteria for "wholesale prices though"

    Toshiba keyboards going for £55 and i don't knowif that includes VAT and delivery

    With regard to laptops....what mike said

    I don`t know how cheap they are:

    Laptop Battery, Laptop Charger, Laptop Repairs, Laptop Spares and Laptop Accessory from Laptopbits.

    I`ve found that searching on Google for a specific part is the best way.
