a1181 Macbook LCD Screen shortage & solution

Posted Friday, April 22, 2011

So, we’re getting to the point where there are 5 kinds of people selling a1181 Macbook LCDs such as the LP133WX1(TL)(A1), B133EW01 V.0, N133L1-L01, LTN133L1-L01, LP133WX1-TLC1, LP133WX1-TLN3 that get used for Rossmann’s a1181 Macbook Screen Repair.

  1. People who claim they are “new” because they hope you will not notice they’re used. Liars – this crap happens all the time with “dumpster diver” vendors, who differ from LCD brokers that only sell factory sealed, unused parts direct from the manufacturer
  2. People who will tell you they’re not new because they’re rare, but who hook the customer looking for a bargain.
  3. People who are out of stock.
  4. People who have tons of new stock left from an old order because they sell them slowly at high markup.
  5. People who sell them new who are running out of stock, and soon to be in category 1, 2, 3, or 4.

The problem is the people who sell to the people that you DIY & small shop users buy from tell people that they are new, but they are not. They then sell the part to you as new. This doesn’t mean they lied – if a 5 year old comes home and tells his mommy 2+2=5 because his teacher said so, he’s not lying. He believes it to be true.

The fact is that very soon there’ll be no factory sealed versions of those parts around anymore. So, people will have to either pay insane amounts of money, or put up with used displays.

Unless, someone finds a display that is factory new, compatible with the a1181 Macbook, made by a top manufacturer.

Meet the new LCD for the a1181 Macbook. Grade A+, factory sealed packaging. This isn’t junk that companies who¬†target small Apple repair centers in¬†Shenzhen city tout as new, as they remove it from an old machine to be cleaned and resold to you.

The best part? With the amount I’ve reserved, I can continue providing the service at a bargain, and provide small repair centers with these screens for less than the insane prices these have gone up to lately.
