    Hello everyone,

    I accidentally hit a huge dent into the topcase of my girlfriend's MacBook Air. I want to replace the part myself but they are very hard to get and expensive.

    Could I buy a used / damaged 2010 MBA for the part? The reason: 2010's go cheaper on eBay than 2011's.

    So, has anyone done this before? I can't find any definite answer saying that the topcase is interchangeable on these machines.

    thanks!

    If it's just the display bit, you can probably go for it, however getting a definite answer on here is going to be pretty tricky.
