I am about to purchase a replacement Top Case for my white Macbook v1.1 - it's chipped pretty bad. The thing is, I figure if I'm going to be replacing it, why not spice it up a bit and get a black top case?

My question is, is there anything structurally different enough about the BLACK top case from the WHITE top case that would make replacing a white one with a black one unfeasible?

Thank you so much in advance for any replies.

* Also, if anybody happens to know: where can I get some of the screws that are used in the macbook? I've lost a couple while tinkering with the insides over the years, hehe.

It will fit just fine, there is nothing different about them besides the color.

For the screws, click here.

Meh, I'm not too keen on the look though...

My colleague had a black MB with a white top case whilst he was waiting for a replacement black top case from apple... looks fun for about 5 minutes.

Just take it into apple and they will replace it for free with a new topcase. Even if your out of warranty
