12-02-2011, 02:43 PM #1Replacing top case on brand new MacBook Air
A customer brought in a brand new MacBook Air (1.6GHz A1370) to the computer repair shop I work at. They spilled wine on it and now it won't turn on. I removed the logic board and could see no sign of liquid damage, which leads me to wonder if maybe just the keyboard died. Unfortunately I'm having trouble finding the part online since it shares the same model number as the late 2010 models. Does anyone know if the top case is compatible between the new and previous lineup?There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

By the way...as you mentioned...these two models do share the same A1370 designator...but they do have different "EMC" numbers and model ID's. The:
- 2010 1.6ghz MBA is EMC 2393 and MacBook Air 3,1
- 2011 1.6ghz MBA is EMC 2471 and MacBook Air 4,1
