    I need a new hard drive cable for my mid 2012 13" macbook pro. I'm having trouble finding one that ships to Canada and doesn't have horrible shipping times/prices.

    ifixit is $11 but takes over a month to arrive. faster shipping is $35+.

    newegg doesnt seem to ship to canada and their canadian site doesnt have them.

    Contact an Apple authorized service provider and see if they'll sell you the part.

    Ifixit. Shipping appears to be $10.

    EDIT: Never mind.

    EDIT 2: Interestingly, since Ifixit has a European store, I can actually get it over here in just 3 business days for €8.90 - from an American company...
    It seems their shipping service is quite poor for you Canadians.
    (I don't mean to gloat; just an observation. :))

    Ncix? Tigerdirect?

    Else just pay up for the shipping, it's not like you'd get it cheaper if you had it repaired by someone else.

    Shipping to CA doesn't have to be terrible. I ship to CA all the time and if you use USPS First-Class International, the pricing is somewhat reasonable. But transit is 10 or so days, once you account for the 5-6 days for it to get there, plus 3-4 days in customs.

    Some vendors don't like shipping using that method though because USPS has horrible tracking once a package leaves the US.

    I found one on Amazon.ca. Maybe they'll ship a little faster? I can't figure out how fast it takes unfortunately. http://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B00GJQCJWG/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1430182667&sr=8-2&pi=SX200_QL40&keywords=macbook+pro+hard+drive+cable&dpPl=1&dpID=31GX1pRlIXL&ref=plSrch
