I carelessly put a small crack in my previous screen and after getting an estimate from a shifty guy at the Apple store I would have been better off replacing the whole Macbook. I'm in college and I need to save the money.
The process was smooth and easy with excellent steps and pictures to help bulster confidence. This is the first time I've really opened up a piece of technology and I was initially very nervous. Now I am interested in doing it for other people for a significantly lower cost than your typical store.
Do your research with pricing on repairs, but if you're comfortable with reading directions, this will be a cakewalk.
