I am the owner of a 2007 Macbook version 2.1 that was part of a trade I made with a guy on Craigslist. Thanks to this forum, I read about the many "crackbooks" some of the members had, but then read Apple would fix them free of charge. I thought to myself, you've got to be kidding. Who would fix a product over 4 years old for free, but to satisfy my curiosity, I made an appointment this morning with the "genius bar" at my local apple store. When I arrived I showed the the tech the crack to the right side of the touch pad and on the left top bezel over my screen. I was immediately answered with "OK what else is wrong" I was a bit stunned, but proceeded to tell her that sometimes a first keystroke would not register. She new exactly what I meant and then told me apple would fix not only the cracked pieces, but the keyboard and keypad which was badly worn free of charge and it would be ready in around 3 hours. I came back and picked up my old Macbook which when opened up looked like new. Apple had replaced the housing, top case with keyboard and keypad and the display bezel and yes it was all FREE! WOW! I am blown away that ANY company would do this on a product over 4 years old! I am not the original owner, and there was no apple care purchased with this Macbook, no receipts or bill of sales to show...no nothing...they just plain fixed it for free, no questions asked and now I am the recipient of a new looking Macbook. The point is, if you have an pre-unibody Macbook that you think is too old for apple to fix, think again, because they fixed mine and they'll fix yours. Make an appointment with "Genius bar" (you can do this online) and see. Without the contributions of the members of this forum there's no way I would have ever even thought to bring this thing in for repair, no less FREE repair. Thanks MacRumers for all the great info that's shared on this forum!
