    I have an original Unibody MBP 15". It has taken a few spills off of the bed due to very slick comforter material and is now bent on both of the back corners. Because of this, when the computer is closed it only magnetically latches on one side. I'd really like to get this fixed because the machine will sometimes wake from sleep because its lid is not completely closed.

    Any clue on what the repair cost for this might be?

    Also, the bottom piece (battery cover) is somehow bent as well, any thoughts on the cost of that piece? At least this piece I could replace myself.

    I wonder if I could simply try to bend the back edges back into place myself... somehow that doesn't sound like it would end well.

    Parts for the entire bottom are $200 ($50 for the access panel and $150 for the remaining bottom). Link
