Looking for someone to point me in the right direction. What is the cost? Where can get my 2013 15 inch MacBook screen replaced? Also, it has the Retina display. I closed my charger between the screen and keyboard. Now I have the rainbow lines of death. Lol

Ahhh so sorry to hear that! If you’re up for the challenge, I would recommend checking eBay for a screen matching your exact specifications and making it a DIY. Make sure it is the correct display for your model before purchasing. If you don’t think you’d wanna go that route, find a local computer repair place in your area and see if they would replace it for you. I really can’t tell you how much it’d cost unfortunately. It could be any wide range of prices from $100-$800 is my guess but don’t hold me to it. At any rate, best of luck repairing the display! And let me know if you have anymore questions!

At 8 years old, a repair like this probably isn't worth the cost (which would be considerable).

A do-it-yourself with a replacement display you find yourself -might- be worth it, but then there's always the possibility that something else could get broken during the job.

Time for a replacement.
Either m1 or the last of the Intels.
Your choice.

Thank you for the response. I've been pricing them, so they want to charge $700-$800 argh!
