    took my macbook in because it had the chipped top plate ( near the palm rest it was peeling away at the edges) half hour later i had a brand new plate ( which i assumed) did not know you got a new track pad and new keys too :bowdown:

    i spent some time cleaning her up and with the new piece she feels fresh out the box :bowdown:

    Awesome. I'm surprised they replaced the keys, too. When I got my top case replaced on my MacBook Pro, they replaced the top case, the track pad, and that was it. Good deal

    Were you under applecare?

    I have some pitting on the top of my MBP case, but I've passed the one year mark already and never purchased extended applecare. I want to get that replaced, but I bet it's going to cost me a fortune. :wtc:

    the keyboard and trackpad is riveted to the top plate on the macbooks, so it all replaced as one part, and isn't returnable for refurb like some other parts are.
