I just had my Macbook Pro Retina's screen replaced, and figured there may be some on here who are wondering as to cost and time.

I walked into the Apple Store with a pretty bad crack along the side. I had asked them in advance by two weeks (I was out of the country) to have a new screen on hand at the store, and thankfully they did.

In total it took $729 including labor charges, and 6 hours (bearing in mind the store was in the midst of the iPhone 5 launch) to replace the screen.

:eek: Now I need to invest in a hard case of some sort and be more careful

Did you inspect the screen thoroughly? I did 2 repairs for IR and pinkish tinge issues and found my Samsung replacement screen having an issue as well, backlight bleeding.

I had my 2011 MBP 13" screen/shell replaced a couple weeks ago. It cost $229 and they charged an hour labor for $39. Turn around time was 4 days.

Just had my MBRP screen replaced for stuck pixels. It took them 20 minutes, so not a difficult repair.
