We know how it is. You have a laptop or monitor that's finally bought it, so you decide to salvage it for parts that you'll use someday. Well, here's one decidedly inexpensive option for any spare LCD panels you might have lying around. As noted by Make, you can now buy a simple LCD controller on eBay for just $33, which will turn that panel (assuming it's compatible) into a fully functional monitor without too much skill required on your part -- you're on your own to make it presentable, though.
