    Had my New Macbook Pro in my backpack today and I droped it getting out of the car and put a pretty nice dent in the lid casing and the top lid... Can I replace both and if so where is the best place to buy them? Thank you

    A few things would actually help here.

    - Unibody/non-unibody.
    - Images of the dents

    Yes there are sites you cna buy top cases on, and guides more benefit for pre-unibody's on places like http://www.ifixit.com/

    I can't even tell you how many stories there have been regarding people dropping their MBPs near the car.

    Ouch. You might want to think about buying one of Tom Bihn's brain cells. I don't own one, but they look to have lots of padding, so you don't have an accident like that again.

    I have the dent in the cover mostly back to normal with a little banging of a hammer and cloth i got it mostly back to normal. However I have the corner of my screen bent in a little pit...I am thinking a cloth and pliers and pry it back would be the best bet? Any ideas..Also my battery cover is bent so it doesnt line up any ideas on where to buy one cheap?
