If you don't mind downgrading the resolution from 1680x1050 to 1440x900, you can use another LCD Panel used for 17" Toshiba laptops: LTN170X2-L02. It's almost the same size and spec-wise, except for the lower res...and can be found much cheaper ($50 to $80). The only caveat is that the backlight cable comes out in a slightly different place, and you have to dremel away some of the lid so it doesn't pinch the backlight cable. I was interested to see if the Mac would recognize it, as 1440x900 was not one of the official resolutions mentioned in the original MacBook specs, but it worked!
