I have one of these that the LCD and digitizer are broken. These parts cost more than the laptop is worth.  I'd like to just replace the LCD and bezel and use it as a non touch screen model.  Should this work?  The OS is Windows 8.  Thanks in advance

That would definitely work, as the V5 series was sold without Touch screens as well. A good repair shop will then use that item to repair your laptop, and disconnect the digitiser.
In some cases, a fully working touch screen laptop can have a disabled touch screen (usually by software errors, drivers issues interfering with the digitiser interface), and still works normally in Win8 (of course with touchpad or mouse). In your case, disconnecting the digitiser (and replacing it with a "normal" panel) is basically the same.

Excellent.  Sorry for the delay in responding.  When I search V5-571P-6648 I'm having difficulty finding the front bezel.  Is there another model number I should be using?
