Couldn't help but comment on this. I have replaced a broken mac screen
for a friend before. It is a little bit involved, but definitely doable.
Total cost including replacement screen from Amazon and tools was
around $100. I think I still have the tools, so I'd be happy to provide
those. I can volunteer my services to do the replacement itself, but
I'll only be able to do this over a weekend...I'm ridiculously busy on
Finally, all the detailed instructions you'll need with photos can be found at http://www.ifixit.com/. Just look up your model #.
Good luck! And please let me know if I can help.
