    You may want to try iFixit. I get parts from them from time to time and the prices always seem reasonable.

    Hello, first off thanks for responding. AnywaysI looked at ifixit, and they are talking about 250 for upper case and 240 for lower case which is $490+ shipping.......kind of insane pricing if you ask me.....I mean their actual costs are probably like 25 bucks for both.

    I am lost/dumbfound as to why in the world a case costs more than a cpu or motherboard which takes millions of dollars and freakin "rocket" scientists to make.....anyone share the same expressions as me? I would write an email to ifixit it but they would most likely ignore it, not worth wasting time.

    Unless you can find a cheap "parts" computer...laptops (and even desktops)...just aren't cost effective to repair via parts retailers. They're going to charge top price for the parts.

    You gotta find someone with a broken computer...where the parts you need work.
