Depnding on the size of you LCD it will run you at
least 1k just for parts.
Amazing that one can purchase a 32" HDTV for less than a $1000 and yet the price of a notebook display remains virtually unchanged!
Sorry about your notebook display and i feel your pain as i need one for my powerbook, best of luck in getting it repaired.
Your MBP seems to be under its warranty period. Apple might replace the damaged LCD panel, although you dropped your MBP. Dell used to replace LCD panels of my 'deceased' Dell laptop without asking me the cause of the damage. Apple might do it too. Your credit card company may also have coverage for such damage.
MBP 15.4" (CD, Week 17, 2GHz, 2GB Samsung RAM, 80GB Seagate HDD) Mac OS X (10.4.9)
Don't count on Apple doing the same. I had to pay for a screen and labour when only a small crack happened in a weak corner of the screen. I even had the AppleCare plan, which unfortunately doesn't cover these types of incidents.
Credit card or homeowner's/renters insurance may be best bet, or do as I did and suck it up and pay for it.
