About the right price for a 12"/15" -17" can be slightly more...

Ah would yah stop - we have to make a living like
but anyway a lot are over priced..
75 fixed for virus removal/security re-configuration
125 OS repairs/re-installs
150[starting from] windows upgrade (i.e. me to xp, xp to windows 7, vista to xp or windows 7)..
hardware? depends on cost of part. (personally) general rule of thumb is cost of part +50 for fitting. However if it's just a dc socket replacement, then it's cost of socket (usually 5euro max) plus 30 fitting charge.
Motherboards? usually can be sourced fro about 100euro but some will cost more. Such as Aspire 5920/5920g [example] is around 140-150euro+fitting
casings are relatively cheap enough and again cost of part+ small fitting charge.
Batteries? cheap enough on ebay (And if ye can't fit one then ye shouldn't have the bloody machine in first place!).
Chargers? again source on ebay - there cheap enough but do be careful as a lot of Chinese copies are on there and some will cause a lot of harm. A lot don't give out the correct voltage/amps and will blow your mainboard. Just be careful and read the feedback.
