How much would it possible be to just replace the whole macbook shell. I am going to get the palm rest shell replaced since it cracked (hopefully), so i thought why not the rest since it is pretty scuffed up already. Would estimates be possible?

I'm actually curious about this as well.

I guess you could call it a little "Buyers COLOUR Remorse" as I sit here looking at my Black MB wishing I had bought a White one.

I know I could always send my MB into Colorware, however $450 is a little steep IMO.

Why not email Apple. I don't think anyone here has the answer.

Because that's the most obvious answer, and we as Internet Forum members, vow to come up with our own solutions first!

Take a look here - the 13" Macbook (for a 2.2 GHz) is less tha $300 for an upper and lower shell, with keyboard. fix it yourself... http://www.ifixit.com/Products/MacBo...ponents/16/126

EDIT: Sorry, just noticed, these parts are slightly used, but guaranteed...

You could look on ebay-I have seen them on there before. You can search "macbook bottom" or "macbook top" and get some hits. I have a clear skin on my blackbook and love it! I don't know if you've looked into that. Good luck!
