    The part (dunno what it's called, but it's the one with the Apple logo on, back of display) is dented.

    Anybody know any websites for replacements or on how much would I have to pay to Apple for it?!

    I'm also covered under 1 year warranty if that helps?!?! :confused:

    Apple doesn't cover cosmetic/accidental damage. If nothing's wrong with the screen, why worry about it? You never look at the back anyway. And besides, laptops will get scratched and dinged. It's life. Look at it this way: you can now enjoy your Mac without worrying about every cosmetic defect that arrives. :D

    Did the MacBook arrive dented? If so, take it to the Apple Store or contact AppleCare and see if they'll replace it. As far as I know, the displays on the unibody aluminum MacBooks and MacBook Pros are all one piece, it's not repairable, but it is replaceable.

    I'll be putting a case over it and protecting it more carefully once I get it fixed.
