So the reason I had to fix the screen of my macbook pro was because it came crashing out of my bag one day and onto the pavement. A nice dent in the back made a crack in the front that made a nice L shaped colored bar in the top third of my screen. Had to fix it otherwise i'd be doing all my stuff on a much smaller screen andI just don't want to do that.
I'm not fantastic at computer things but a buddy of mine is. I handed it to him. He managed to do most of the stuff until I get a phone call from him saying the glass broke. I'm not sure exactly what he meant, after a small panic, he told me about the fragile glass that is on the outside of the LCD that is basically a cover and protector. I can live without it and am looking at a cheap alternative with some glue and maybe some clear plastic. Repair went fine, he told me the instructions on the ifixit website were pretty good but that the glass is so fragile that it is hard to even get on there. I also, apparently, had one of the macbook pro models that didn't have some magnetic strip on the glass so it couldn't just pop on. Had to require hot glue and all sorts of fun. Other than that not half bad. Got my screen back to full awesome!
read all instructions. Be very very very gentle.
