my son tripped and dropped his MacBook Pro. One corner of the screen is now black - looks like a crack on the inside. Apple told me it would most likely be about $500 to fix. Are there any other solutions? It works fine, just the screen.
Depending on your Model:
You could do it your self to save some.
If you ONLY replace the LCD part and not the whole display the costs are in the range of $100 to $200 depending on which LCD type you choose.
There are some very good instructions how to at ifixit web site.
