    I'm looking for an alternative to ebay. I had a PS1 game system that came with a 5" LCD screen built on. This made it useable in the car or nearly anywhere. It was great on long road trips with my 6 and 8 year old in the back seat. It utterly ended the mischief you can imagine was spawned by the boredom. But now the screen wore out, ;U and it seems that Sony doesn't make them anymore. ;u Where can I find another one for a reasonable price?^8

    similar problem with laptop screens. disassemble the unit, and find out the exact manufacturer and model of the LCD screen on the back.

    then google away.

    I ended up combing the city this morning in search of one after a coworker assured me they are still sold. No luck at Walmart, Target, Electronics Boutique, Toys R Us, or Game Stop. In the end I found one at Kmart (Toys R Us recommended I look there). Apparantly since Kmart can't get customers in their store, old stock is all they have. This was helpful as three of the stores I'd been to told me the screen was discontinued. I choked momentarily on Kmarts political positions and bought one. In this case, their woes benefited me:(

    I think they did, but not long after, they phased out the sale of handgun ammunition for the stated purpose of preventing incidents like Columbine. After Sept 11, they were also one of the quickest stores to pull their remaining rifles off the shelf (after all, we wouldn't want terrorists to buy any, nor would we want the common citizen to wreak mayhem on his neighborhood), and one of the last to return them to sale.
