    Replacing the whole MacBook shell
    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!

    Except macservice.com is even more expensive than colorware.com

    Specs:
    Macbook, 2.2 GHz, 4GB RAM
    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!
