Whilst in drunken stupor at the dacha, I somehow grabbed my laptop by the screen. Now I have black blobs of fingerprints on one side. Could this be fixed, or is this the end of (yet another) laptop?

If LCD panel is physically damaged, you can only ask ASC (Authorised Service center) to change it. Of course the component itself + job will cost some money (my estimation is approx 60% of starting price of that laptop). Plus time for panel delivery (up to 6 weeks, if it's not IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad series - they do 1 week).
Another way is to use non-authorised service companies - they can do faster and cheaper but w/o quality assurance.

I had the same exact thing happen in Kiev with my cheap, crappy Acer Aspire One. I grabbed it by the screen and got weird lines. When I got back to the good old USA, I went on eBay, bought a new LCD screen for $50 and installed it in about an hour.

GaNozri has too much cash to bother with all that hassle... :p
