I have a 2012 13" mbp which whilst cleaning the keyboard I managed to somehow damage it. When I type now with certain keys I get no letters or the wrong ones. Any ideas to how much Apple would charge for a repair here in the UK?

Apple replaced the keyboard together with the uniboy top casing as one replacement. I recently had this done to a 13" MacBook Pro (2011) model. The costs were around €150,- or €190. Don't remember. It don't know how this relates to the Uk sterling.

It was done at the Genius Bar!

Did I read somewhere that if you get the battery replaced in the rMBP that they replace all the bottom shell including the keyboard?
The battery replacement is £109 IIRC.

Thanks guys, £130 to replace by apple, its a lot of money but I think a decent cost considering the components and time it will take to repair....will look to sell though as Ive just bought a 15" rmbp....wow, so fast and gorgeous!
