FS: Faulty/Broken Samsung NC10 Netbook £100.00

I have owned this since new back in Jan 09, it was purchased from Dixons for around £300(!).
It is in fairly good condition, but was used every day up until last month, and therefore has cosmetic marks. Most notably along the silver trim, many keys on keyboard slightly shiny as is the left button of the mouse bar, and the front 3 rubber feet on the bottom are missing. There are also some slight dent in the front left corner when the lid is closed, and a tiny dent above the HDD light on the side!

It has the usual spec (not sure of the ins and outs off hand) but is 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, battery still holds charge very well (its the 6 cell) - cant remember the exact time, but it was mainly used plugged in, which is actually why it is now BROKEN!

Right, so whats wrong with it?
The Power lead is dead. I can include it, or leave it out if you wish. You might be able to change the connector on the end if your good at that sort of thing, but I think the wire has gone in the pin bit.
The Power port (on the actual machine) is also virtually dead. With a working power lead, the connector has to be in the right position to actually give power to the netbook (often only works held in by hand). I would assume its possible to remove the old port and replace it, but can't be sure.
The screen occasionally flickers - think this might be connected to the power issue, as both came about at the same time, but again not sure. Might be a loose connection with the screen? It sometimes happens, sometimes doesnt, which leads me to believe its to do with how the screen is positioned or something.
The "]}" and "#~" keys have fallen off. I've still got the keys but the clips have broken off, I think you can buy these off ebay for £3 each or so.
A couple of the screws are a little wrecked as I used the wrong screwdriver to have a quick look inside, but are still very much usable if you have the right headed driver!

Think thats all the problems, everything else functions perfectly, WIFI, Bluetooth, all USBs, ethernet, headphone port etc etc. I'll restore it back to factory settings so Windows is fresh for you. It is running XP (I have never changed it since purchasing). I'll also charge up the battery in our other NC10 so you can actually see its in working order out of the box! If theres any more info I've missed that you want to know just ask.

I also have the original box in my Grandmothers attic, which I shall get down and post it in, along with the packaging/manuals etc, and the cloth slip-case.

Photos in first post.
Shipping/Payment:
Payment by Bank Transfer or paypal(you to pay fees)/paypal gift. I should think courier postage is the best option, which is included in the price.

Too low, sorry. If you know what your doing, it could be a cheap fix, and I recon the battery alone is worth £30-40.

A 9 cell bat's worth around £25/30 (& thats brand new ... ebay), ok how about £65?

Thats new, but thats Chinese. I can't even find a genuine 6 cell on completed listings, and looking at the Amazon listing could probably get £40 easy for it used (after fees).
£65 after posting is simply not worth it.

I'll offer you £70. Will probably cost about £50 to £100 to get it fixed properly

Bear in mind you can get brand new netbooks (not samsung ofcourse) for about £150 - £200

It could need a whole new motherboard, as what often happens is the power jack sticking out of the side of the netbook gets knocked and hit, and this ends up fracturing the motherboard inside.

I could meet you half way at £85 - I was hoping to clear £80 after posting, but would probably clear around £75 in that case which I suppose is ok.

When I opened it up I don't remember seeing any damage to the motherboard, so might only need the £7 part. I would assume more problems would exist if the board was damaged?
In light of the above buy-it-now price for the jack, if I get no reasonable offers I'll have a go at fixing it myself.
