    I just noticed the glass on my MBP is cracked, I think the GF did it but she said no, and I am very careful with my gear. Does anyone have an idea what the glass costs to replace? I do not need to replace the entire display do I?

    Assuming it's the retina as it's a 2013, then you can't you have to replace the entire display assembly, in fact many places will only replace the whole lid because it's such a nightmare. If it's not and it's a 2012 non retina bought in 2013 then check out iFixit.com for fixing guides.

    The glass is fused to the display on retina models. You're probably going to have to replace the entire display assembly.

    Turns out since mine was a late 2012 non retina, the repair costs was under $350.00 so I am having Apple fix it, love this i5 2.5 8/256 machine, still have the super drive but I do use it from time to time to rip cd's and movies.
