    I accidentally cracked my moms trackpad on her brand new Macbook Pro 13''. My dad just purchased it for her as a gift 3-4 months ago. Sooo...me not knowing that the trackpad was GLASS, I carelessly tapped the track pad very hard in frustration of a slow website. Now I need to buy a new trackpad and replace it before he finds out. My mom already knows that it has been damaged. The only problem that I am having is finding the correct trackpad that is compatible with my moms Macbook Pro.

    Here is some info you may need to help me out

    You cracked the trackpad because a page was loading too slowly...? After you find a replacement, you ought to seek some anger management help.

    Before he finds out? Are you nuts. So what, you broke a track pad. Is he going to kill you? Just bring it to apple and let them fix it. Easy as that. You know, things like that happen and if you are afraid about your father, perhaps he needs anger management as well.
