This service covers A1278 Unibody Macbooks with a broken or malfunctioning screen.
The price is based on whether the glass, the LCD display, or both are broken.
The glass refers to the front plexiglass layer – the part that you can touch. The LCD is the inner part that creates the picture. These are separate pieces. The price of the repair is dependent on what exactly is broken.
Bring the laptop to our store, or mail it to us for repair.

We don’t get dust between the LCD & the glass.
Check our work after we’re done. We work in a very clean environment. Our room is cleaned by high quality air filtration units, and has contaminents removed from shelving, floors, and workbenches on an hourly basis.
Our glass isn’t cheap, $10 eBay junk.

This is the same LG LCD Apple uses, and the same sheet of plexiglass.
It’s the original glass Apple put into your machine. No bubbles, no defects, no grey borders. The easiest way to tell the original glass from the knockoff glass is to look at the black square border around the glass. On knockoff glass, it is grey. On ours, it’s black, just like the oriignal – because it IS the original! The LCD is a Samsung LTN133AT09, LG LP133WX3-TLA5, LP133WX3-TLA6, LP133WX2-TLG6, or LP133WX2-TLG5 depending on our stock. Regardless of the brand or model, what they all have in common is they are purchased direct from Samsung & LG’s brokers, and are brand new, grade A+. Unlike the many imitator services that buy these parts off eBay from the middlemen, we buy direct from the manufacturer. If you’re thinking of going with someone else, there’s a good chance they’re buying the part from us right after you checkout with them! We buy grade A+ LCDs in quantites of 200-1000 from Chi Mei & LG. The reason for our fast turnaround and low price is that we are the parts source.
What separates you from the guy on craigslist who beats your price by $15??
Every device has something about it that makes it tricky to work on.
- We do not scratch your LCD while removing the glass.
- Our glass does not have black borders, bubbles, or defects.
- We do not ruin the black rubber trim around the glass while we are removing it.
- We remove the old adhesive and install new, proper adhesive so your glass does not fall off.
- We do not get dust from the room inbetween your glass & LCD. We operate in a clean environment.
Most other repair centers buy the LCDs off eBay or other middlemen 5-10 at a time, because for them, this is a side business. Or, they are a general service company that performs many different repairs, so stocking 1000 LCDs for one machine makes no sense. Our bread & butter, 12 hours a day, is providing screen replacement service & acquisitions of rare & discontinued LCD screens from the manufacturer. Our supplier, buys the parts we use from Toshiba, AUO, LG, Samsung, Chi Mei, Chung Hwa, and receives excellent quantity discounts for purchases of 50-100 cartons worth.
We offer an excellent limited warranty.
If the glass falls out of the frame within 1 year, we will fix it. If it is clear that the glass has been physically damaged, the warranty is voided. The LCD is warrantied against failure unless liquid or physical damage has caused its malfunction.
