Depends wahts actually happened in there. If the connector has simply
broken a trace on the PCB, you _might_ get away with someone resoldering
it in place. If the force of the connector getting yanked has actually
broken the motherboard PCB (possible) - then the machine is probably a
write-off. Replacememt motherboard + labour would likely cost the same
as replacing the whole machine.
Your only other hope might be to scour ebay and similar for the same
machine with e.g. smashed screen - and do the labour yourself.
