    So I'm in Antarctica with my 13" 2012 MBP working until March. My screen got cracked by a buddy down here and hes offered to pay for the repair. What are we looking at price wise? any ideas? it doesnt seem like the screen is cracked but merely the plastic? cover over it....
    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Are you talking about the glossy glass cover that sits over the display assembly itself?

    If so, iFixit has them listed for about $100. I would expect an Apple store will probably charge you somewhere between $400-$600 for repair. (A simple upper case ... keyboard and surrounding bezel part is $300, and Apple charges around $800-$900 to replace that.)

    It'll be cheaper to get the part and tools from iFixit.com, and then follow their guide to replace it yourself.

    Antartica? Well, getting a good deal for the display is the least of your worries... what is going to kill you is delivery charges. No joke.

    Meh, they can just have FedEX take a shortcut through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest. They should have it in a day ... tops!

    Didn't they recently open an Apple Store at McMurdo Station, in the mall next to Starbucks?

    Seriously, you have my sympathies. :)
