Dropped laptop, Bent Corner Repair

I dropped my Mac Book Pro and it bent the top left side of the lid/screen.. And dinged the bottom left corner of the base. Can it be fixed to look new? If so, how much would this cost?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

In a word, No. Your options are to replace the parts or put a hard cover on it.

Alternatively - I had a chance to get a MacBook Pro the other day. Dented corner and broken glass. If not concerned about it looking new, can it be bent back well enough for a new glass to install and seat?

@bartidog - yes, here's the tool: http://www.pliertek.com/collections/macb...

But the problem comes replacing the guts on a retina display which is something I have not done yet.
