Broken Macbook Pro Screen

These guys were excellent. For any1 in the Los Angeles area that needs their Macbook screen replaced or fixed, I called them up and had my computer back to normal in less than 24hrs. They have local service areas and are stictly a mobile service, I think.

Check 'em out...www.crackedmacscreen.com They charged $299 for a screen replacement. No extra fees

I have mackbook pro 15 inch. My screen is cracked and they quoted me a price to repair it for 1200.00! It's two years old... I might as well buy a new laptop within the first 6 months the logic board had to be replaced, then another logic board after that and a hard drive within the first year and 6months that I've owned it. Now a cracked screen and I didn't drop it. They told me some type of pressure caused it but I don't see how??? Very disappointed the total cost of my laptop with the protection plan was 2500.00. No way I'm paying 1/2 price to fix a screen on a two year old laptop

Fix it yourself if you're unwilling to pay Apple's price. Glass doesn't just explode. It cracks, but only if there's some form of stress applied.

I did the same thing! And it's super expensive to have Apple or some technician fix it for you. So I decided to just do it myself. I ordered the replacement glass online and then fixed it myself. It was honestly like an hour. Super easy, didn't need any tools or anything. Here's the writeup I did for how I did it.

Hope that helps!

Ps, it cost me less than $100!
