    Good day guys:)
    I have an old white macbook which already does not have apple care.
    It has a crack on the wrist rest on the right side.
    Where could I have it replaced for a reasonable price?

    Thanks in advance:)

    Ynzal would be a good choice. Just had my top cover replaced under warranty.

    Kjeldor's macbook according to him is no longer under warranty.. so I guess he needs to prepare some big bucks for it..

    You could have it replaced - OR - have it repaired and pimped (painted to color, design - your choice) for around 2K. There are lot of these services at TPC.

    If I had an old laptop I'd like to have it painted in mario brothers colors with the 1up logo right over the apple logo ;)

    How to check the apple warranty? I've already registered my Macbook with SN# W89083KA1AQ on the apple website. I cannot verify it it was properly registered and when the warranty will expire..

    you can check your macbook's warranty at the link below:

    https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do

    based on your serial #:

    "Our records indicate that your product is covered under Apple's Limited Warranty which is estimated to expire on 24 March 2010.


    Your product is eligible for complimentary phone support which is estimated to expire on 24 March 2010."

    Thanks guys.
    I'll try Senco first, it is closer to work.
    @ skinhead
    Is the one on TPC an authorized Apple Center?
