Not to old laptop needs TLC. Help me with ideas? Answered

So, My sister had a laptop and let her neanderthal boyfriend at it with a screwdriver and what looks like brute force. The contact that the charge cable plugs into needs to be re soldered and i would have been just fine but he broke up the case pretty bad.. I think everything would be fine if i put the goods in a new case or something but i thought it post here to get some ideas. Fire away! thanks.

He can't pay for a new one then? Wha- no never mind I'll not ask "why?" A new case is either going to be expensive or hard to find - you could try Ebay for exactly the same model but with "broken screen" or "water-damage" L

Ooh, then in that case may I suggest making it into some sort of tablet or kindle looking thing.
