    Does anyone know where I can buy just the LCD and do the replacement myself?

    I really don't feel like paying Apple $1200 to fix it. :hs:

    find a compatible higher res LCD on Ebay, get yourself up to 1920x1200 instead of that bullshit 1400x900 nonsense, and still pay $300 tops for the replacement.
