Hi i just dropped my unibody mbp and i was wonder how much it would cost to get a new case for it? The dent is on the lid and on the corners of where you put your wrist.

Is your laptop still functioning properly?

You cannot buy a new case. It has to be a full replacement.

I've a scratched on bottom of my 17" MAC Pro recently. I took it to Apple store. I remember it cost 72 bucks to replace the bottom panel.

Make an appoint and see what they says.

Cheers,

His dents are on the top though, so I would imagine it will a lot more expensive to swap out. Worth asking though :thumbup:

Kwoka,

You can elect to pay for replacement parts. From the sounds of it you will need a replacement display and top case.

The cost of these parts and labour will vary depending on your exact model. Take it into your local Apple store or service centre for an exact quote.

But be warned, the parts and labour for this repair (display + topcase + labour) will probably exceed the cost of buying a replacement machine.
