HI guys

Is it at all possible to buy just the shell of a MacBook :? I'm looking to buy the shell of a White MacBook 13-inch, Early 2009. I have had a look around the internet & cannot really find anything. I would just like to know if it is possible thanks.

It might be easier to look for a spares or repairs macbook and take the case off than buying just the case. You can always sell the good bits to make up the difference (if there is one).

Hmmm I never actually thought about that. That does seem a good idea though. Think i'll go have a look on ebay or amazon now. Thank you for your helpful reply...

I have actually seen people selling chassis from both MacBooks and iMacs around the internet. Mostly on a site called DBA, which is a Danish buying/selling service much like eBay. I'm quite curios as to what you wish to do with the shell though?

I really don't plan to do much apart from use it as a base for building a powerful custom laptop...
