Went to Apple Store, they confirmed the battery needed to be replaced, told me it was $130 for a new one. I opted against it (figured I'd grab a cheap one online somewhere for now).Then, she informed me that the cracked casing on the edge where my right hand rests is a defect and that I could have the whole housing replaced. I said sure, and left my MacBook there for repairs.

Just picked it up about an hour ago, new housing, new keyboard, new trackpad/click button....and a brand-spanking new battery on the house.Call me whatever you'd like, but that would make anyone love Apple.Left my MacBook at home during a vacation and forgot to completely power down. It was closed and when i got back it was dead. Didn't think it was a big deal, it has happened before.
I plugged in my MacBook, turned it on, and begin doing what i needed to do. I noticed after about a half hour my battery symbol was still showing 0% with the full charge symbol. I unplugged the power cord and it immediately turned off again--completely dead.Plugged it back in, turned it on and it was fine, but still not charging. The light on my connector is green as well (signaling a full charge).Left it plugged in for about an hour after that with the top closed and still no charge.
