    hey my applecare expired :( and there is a sliver that cracked off the palmrest on my white macbook. i have to drive pretty far to an apple store. i was wondering if anyone knew about how much it would be to fix it? i kinda want to upgrade, do they take trade-ins, or should i sell it as is and put the money towards a new one.. i used my student discount on the first one, can i use it again? i bought it august 2007. thanks :)

    There is a chance that they replace it for free because it is a known issue. Not promising anything. Give them a call and tell them what's up before you drive down. They can probably tell you over the phone what it will cost or if they will even do it for free.
