I think I paid $565 or $525 when new in 2014. Well it is out of warranty.
Finally I told them I would wait till IT Show to decide if I want to go ahead with the repairs. Perhaps the Lenovo Tab 3 pro is more suitable for me. I want to draw my regular thinking maps on the Tablet. At the moment I am back to using Dia which being more cumbersome is much more powerful and that is indispensable when the maps become complex. Perhaps I should just forget about replacing the Tab S. Will decide this weekend.
