We'd love to carry this part but there's a problem; it has "MacBook" written on it which is an Apple trademark. There are a lot of people making and selling aftermarket versions of this type of glass and are illegally putting the "MacBook" word on it. We could sell it if we could prove the glass is authentic and made by an official Apple OEM but most of the time we cannot prove the authenticity of the part so we steer clear of selling this part. We're looking into sourcing some that do not have the text on the glass.

I have a 13" Early 2011 MBP with cracked glass, and a 2008 Macbook aluminum body of the same size, so am considering using the Macbook glass as replacement. But I assume the adhesive will not easily transfer. Do you carry or recommend a screen adhesive?

@kyle Hopefully this will soon be carried by our site host.

I've found this supplier to be very good. The replacements are covered with paper that peals off so you can work with, it stays clear of finger prints. Prices are good and the shipping is fast. I keep the 13, 15 and 17" MacBook Pro replacements in stock.

Thanks for the recommendation @mayer (and many other good ones I've taken advantage of before). For a $15. replacement, I think it will be good too keep my old aluminum Macbook intact!
