    a tiny piece of the inside border around the screen on my white macbook chipped off. it's on the far right right above the thing i don't know how to describe it but it looks like this: --------

    i don't have warranty or apple care or anything like that anymore but i was wondering how much it would cost to repair. would it be a quick fix that i can just pick up later in the day? i heard that simple repairs like this cost around 40 or 50 dollars but i don't know really

    i bought my macbook from someone so i don't have the receipt or anything but i do have some papers from when he went to repair cracks before. i don't know i'm really good with my macbook since i got it used and it was already sort of beat up. i've never slammed it shut so i don't even know how it cracked :(

    Sounds like you're talking about the plastic bezel. If so, you can order another one from greedbay (ebay) and replace it yourself here.

    Mine was replaced last year. I think the part, which is called the front bezel, was £10 on my receipt and the total repair cost was under £30 (about US$45). I didn't have to pay it because I had AppleCare and Apple damaged the bezel while replacing my screen. It was very simple for them to do once they ordered the part in.
