    Where's the cheapest place to pick these up? Ebay?

    I'm looking for a top case assembly with trackpad and keyboard for the Penryn 2.4 GHZ Core2Duo Macbook Pro 17".

    Also, my superdrive has been wonky lately and I'm thinking about replacing it. What's the best model of superdrive to use? Is there a better option?

    I have a bottom case for an Early 2008 17" MBP. Purchased it originally to replace the case on mine since I dinged it, but never got around to it and now I've sold the old MBP.

    my friend has replaced the top case on his blackbook before. They retail from regular online stores for around $160+ new and he got a used one from some guy that buys broken computers and salvages them for like $40.

    And then the first one he got from the guy was DOA so he emailed him, the dude emailed back right away saying he had 5 more in front of him and tested them all on a test computer he had sitting there and sent the best one, which has worked for a solid 2 years now.

    I'll try to get his info but moral of the story is that it's a safe thing to buy on eBay

    No one here is selling a top case, though, right?
