I think refurbished K2's are selling at around $219, so there is a about a $40 difference compared to the $180 repair.
You can go for the low ball $25 price and hope you can get it replaced for free (if they sell it for that price). If you can buy the broken one at $25 and spend $180 to repair it, you're only saving $14 over a refurbished unit. I'm not sure but I think you would get a new 1 year warranty with the refurbished unit as opposed to a soon to expire one with the broken Kindle even after it is repaired.
Sorry, I'm not making this any easier.
