I have an old iPod Touch with a cracked screen but It still operates normally.
I bought the laptop I am using right now, at a yard sale last summer. I paid only $5.00 because the screen was shattered. I bought a parts laptop with a good screen from eBay for $35.00. It took 15 minutes to replace the screen. (very easy)
The laptop now has a value of about $225.00.
