    I want to replace the whole display with a new one (switching from glossy to anti-glare). I've been searching around online at various Mac Part stores but not found what I'm looking for.

    Basically, I want to buy the anti-glare display and compartment. The whole top unit, as a whole. That way, I just take the top unit off on my MBP and install the new one.

    Surely you can buy these as a whole?

    Those are for pre-unibody MacBook Pros ;)

    I'm after the whole display.


    Like that. Only antiglare! The silver bezel, antiglare display.. the whole shabang. It'll set me back £600 probably, but hoping to sell the display unit on my MacBook Pro (even trade it in) and gain back 70-80% of the costs.

    Ahh, my bad, I just took a quick look and they were the only ones I found :eek:

    Can't you ask Apple to do it?

    Yeah but without derailing this thread onto standard res v high res, I'd rather have 1440x900 :)

    Can't be too complicated taking the whole top half off and putting it back on!
