Your question is unclear, you are interested in buying or selling? the average price on ebay is roughly the cost of the fix
If you're not electro-mechanically  capable, you should just spend the  $300.  $400 total for the system is decent for something from 2014.

You can always plug in an external monitor and use it as a server.  (It's basically BSD, after all.)  I'd just remove the monitor, or just disconnect the video cable, to make it even lower powered.


Fixed!  It was just a connector.  
Very good deal.

Didn't even have to open it up. It's just being pressed so I removed pressure
Solution above.  Thanks.
