I've got a mid-2011 13" Air that is functional except for the keyboard. Right now I'm using it as a media server with an external keyboard, but I would like to be able to take it with me while traveling and stuff like that when I don't want to lug my 15" retina around.
Has anyone here attempted this? I know the parts can be found on ifixit and they have a detailed guide as well for replacing the upper case, but I'm really curious if anyone around has actually attempted this on their own. I am fairly comfortable working with electronics and have built PC's and tore down laptops before, and can use a soldering iron, but I've never so much as taken a screw out of a MacBook let alone replaced a major component.
If it's too difficult I will just have either Apple or a third party service replace it for me.
