    Hi all,
    I have been looking for a mac discount lately and came across a potential deal:
    A floor model 2 ghz core duo MBP with 1 gb of ram. It's keyboard was pretty abused and needs to be replaced...there are many keys missing. Anyone have any idea how much apple will charge for a new keyboard and installation? Also the sales guy wanted 1150, + a $90 discount for apple care, for the computer. I think that number is high because it as been turned on for months now and received abuse from countless customers. I will go back after i have an idea of how much the keyboard repair will cost and try to talk to the manager. Any suggestions for how much to offer? I remember reading that people got their core duo mbp for around 1100-1200 when they were discontinued.
    Thanks for your help,

    When I had my PowerBook's keyboard replaced under AppleCare about a year ago, the price would have been about $150. Since the MBP's keyboard is basically the same thing, I'd think it would cost about the same.

    Just spoke to AppleCare, it will cost between 250-300 +tax for the repair.
