I need to replace the top cover on the lid (Apple logo piece) of my 13" MBP. My comp is a 2010 model, but the only lid covers I can find are 2009 model. I've been searching exhaustively. Two questions:

1) Why can I find 2009's all over and not 2010's?

2) Are the two compatible?

I'd rather spend $150 to fix this rather than $600..which is what Apple wants. Anyone out there able to help?

Apple doesn't sell the back case by itself as you can only get it from them with a complete display, so parts like that just take longer to become available as you can get them used which just takes time for people to start selling them or suppliers being able to sell them.

I can source a 2009 piece...will that work on a 2010 model? They look the same, but I don't know for sure..

I think they use the same part and display, at least some models, you should probably conntact guys which have taken those apart already, there might be changes in the connection, wires...
