        I agree, I bought a rebuilding kit for my A only to find that it
needed to be resleeved. The difference in the price that Apple charges for
a rebuilt one and to resleeve mine was only a few bucks.Before buying a
rebuild kit it is best to inspect what you have.If it needs to be
resleeved then forget the kit.
