I dropped my MBP a couple of times and the usb ports and mini display port have slightly shifted up. I can still plug in devices but they are not detected at all. That's one problem. The other problem is the trackpad "locks" at certain angles. For example, I won't be able to click at all; sometimes it will click by itself. It gets very annoying. I haven't check any repair shops yet since I've been very busy but I'd like to get an estimate from those who might know what the problem is. While we're at it, how hard would it be to repair it yourself by using a guide or something? I'm trying to save as much money as possible for holiday shopping and need to save up for a Mac desktop for next year. But I really need to start using my MBP because my 3d graphics final is due next month and I haven't been able to work on it. I could go to the school's lab but I work extremely early in the morning and when I get home I feel like doing nothing especially driving. If my computer was all fine, I would be working on my hw.
