I don't recall exactly and I'm not at work right now but I think it was
less than $50. It's very simple to install. There is a plastic trim
piece on the top that covers the power and reset buttons. That easily
pries off w/the screen folded all the way back and then it's a matter of
removing 4 small screws and the keyboard lifts right up. Then you can
disconnect it from the mb. I'm not sure how yours works but it's
probably similar. In any case, there are disassembly instructions on the
web - that's where I found mine.
