    Well my friend has a macbook and the screen is cracked. Apple wants $800 to fix, so its not worth that route (its a older macbook). I was wondering if there is a site that has DIY kits for replacing macbook screens? I know they have them for iphones, so I just wanted to see if they had something similar for macbooks.

    Thanks!

    Woah!

    Stop right there.

    Do NOT use that iFixit guide. Don't open the entire machine. See tip A here. http://www.rossmanngroup.com/diy I would copy and paste it but the links won't come along with the text.
