    Hi guys, first post here, so here goes.

    I have a few questions in regards to repairing my MacBook.

    The Macbook has a dent in the top back corner, will try and push it out. Im just wondering if anybody has some advice on how this should be done, to achieve the best results.

    Also I have to get a new lens for my MBP.

    I have been looking at the $30 ones on eBay, but I am not sure if they are as strong and clear as the class ones. So just wondering if anybody has purchased a replacement lens before and how it looks, etc. Macbook is still under warranty, so if I do this properley the 'Geniuses' hopefully wont be able to notice, if something else happens to go wrong in the future.

    Thanks for all the advice guys. Will post some pics when I find my camera.

    Hi mate. Im in Australia so dont have service from that website. But it isnt to hard a job, just want to hear from somebody who has purchased the glass off ebay, if it is the plstic generic one, is it noticable.
