Hi!

I’m a proud owner of a macbook pro 17’ (early 2008). Recently he drops from my hands, hit a stair’s corner and got a big dent in the bottom case.

So now I’m looking around for a used bottom case to install in my MBP. Yesterday I found a good one in ebay at a good price.

The problem is that the case is for a MacBook Pro 17" A1229 and mine’s is a MacBook Pro 17" A1261 (EMC 2199). The photograph of the used case looks exactly as mine’s.

I don’t know if it fits...

Do you have some expertise about this? Can I bought it?

All the best and thanks in advance!

I wouldn't buy it. Only buy an exact bottom case for your model. I don't know if that one would fit or not but it's not worth taking the chance especially buying from eBay.
