Does this top case include the backlight for MBP 13 Unibody?

    Thinking about replacing my keyboard and trackpad (or perhaps the entire top case)

    Anyone know if this includes a backlight as well?

    My backlight is not dim in certain areas since a spill.

    Also, the left click on the trackpad needs to warm up before it works properly.

    Drives me nuts.

    Here's what I'm looking at - just wondering if it includes backlight?

    Additionally, can I buy just a keyboard with a new backlight (or a backlight by itself?)

    The whole top case is one big part. Yes, the keyboard backlight is included with ths part.

    It's true that the backlighting is built in to the top case, BUT.. Note that there are top cases both with and without backlight. Some models were sold without backlit keyboard. The one in the link above does not mention backlight specifically which they usually do (have been thinking of ordering one myself and looked at a few ebay adds myself). Just make sure the part you order is the backlit version.
