My laptop is 15 months old so out of warranty and one of the hinges has broken. Is this something that can be fixed easily and economically or does this mean a new laptop?

I would first of all contact the makers and ask about a replacement hinge. Second I would check your model on line with broken hinge in the search box and see if this is an inherent fault. If it is well documented on line go to where you bought it and ask for it to be fixed. In England and Wales you have 6 years under the law for things to be of merchantable quality in Scotland it is 5 years. Do not worry about being out of warranty. Sales of goods Act.
