    Hi
    I want to replace my macbook case. It is getting scratched and discolored and would like to replace it. I have the white macbook and was thinking of switching to a black case. I would need the outer case, keyboard, and trackpad. My question is where can I get the case and are there any tutorials on how to do so? Cost?

    Thanks

    I think I misworded my post. I want to replace the macbook shell. The actual white plastic is discolored and has small cracks. I want to switch from a white shell to a black shell.

    Understood, but is $400+ worth it?

    If the machine works ... use it and keep the money for the next machine.

    With $500, you're already halfway to a new Macbook. So terribly not worth it.

    Your best bet is iFixit but let me tell you, it will not be cheap or easy. Expect to spend a couple days and at least half the new cost of your computer.
