    The better coast
    well title about sums it up, my drunken roommate decided it would be cool to jump on my bed, he bounced up at an angle and came down on the lid. everything works fine besides the whole screen issue.

    its a Mac Book 13in special edition with the metal case. Does anyone know if the plastic normal lids will fit on here? I havent found a metal one yet

    I kinda want to void the warranty and fix it my self, new lids are like 900$ from the mac store!

    Im also thinking about selling it but idk how much its worth, iv seen parts on evay but not a complete mother board with the keyboard/usb/everything besides screen.

    everyone is willing to chime in on what they think the price is and if a plastic screen will fit on here.

    Might check with apple but I think they might be able to replace it for like a flat fee of 250 or 350.

    Shit! He didn't just crack the
    Glass!!! He bent the whole damn thing! I'd say make him pay for the repair. It was 180 at my local iPhone/blackberry/ laptop repair shop for a new LCD installed in my powerbook17 inch so it can't be that much more for a 13. only issue is you need a new top half of the computer.

    I like this idea.
    Always keep the laptop in a safe place though and hopefully it won't happen again.

    back to bone stock.
    1st beat your friends ass. take a pic.

    go to apple store with picture and tell them the truth. i bet 75% chance they fix it for free. they just changed the keyboard on mine..way out of warranty, because he was in a good mood.

    be honest. dont go doing anything before testing apple goodwill.

    Not going to brag.
    Fix your roommate so he can't populate the planet, then sell him into slavery to pay for a new computer for you.
