Replace a scratched or broken Upper Case!

In the past, laptops responded best to full-body contact and verbal abuse. The laptops of today have a more sensitive nature. Preferring communication through keyboards and trackpads, the modern laptop does not take well to the old way of computer interfacing.

For MacBook (Santa Rosa/Penryn) owners still living in the golden days, we sell replacement upper cases with keyboard to get your MacBook back to responsive condition.

Includes keyboard (with function keys for Expose, Dashboard, and media playback), palmrest area, trackpad, trackpad cable, and power button.

NOTE: This upper case has been tested and functions in all model A1181 MacBooks, including MacBooks that originally shipped with an upper case with a different function key layout. This upper case can be installed in these early model MacBooks as an upgrade, and all function keys will operate properly.
