We get in several Macbook and Macbook Pro notebooks for service. They are a few years old now but the A1181 unit is a very popular machine that we get in. These are built nicely and the most common repair we do on these is screen replacement. LCDs break in a variety of ways on this unit but it is almost always human error.
Prices fluctuate but the last time we checked the entire repair, with a brand new LCD, was running in the $200 – $300 range.
Replacing the screen on a Macbook is time consuming and no easy task. There are some laptops that have a total of 4 screws and are easy enough to fix by a novice. Not the Macbooks! Please go here if you’d like to read more about our current Apple and Macbook repair.
