To be honest you can just get rid of it.

I had the same thing happen to my mini 1010 last year, thought I zipped up my backpack and found out the hard way when it fell to the floor that I didn't. Called Dell, they quoted me $150 bucks to fix it and proceeded to sign me up...I told the support guy no thanks, I'd get a new one instead. He said there was no reason to get a new one when they could repair mine, I told him I could repair it myself for far less than what he wanted me to pay.
Then a strange thing happened...he lowered the repair cost by $25 and said that was "the best he could do". I knew the fix was in then and hung up on him. The I went to eBay, found a new outer case for $50 (and an internal BT module for $20 while I was there), and replaced the broken case. The instructions for adding the BT module were exactly what I needed to know how to open the case without damaging the electronics.
So for half the price, I actually improved my Mini.
