Default Replacement Lcd for Macbook

I have a 13.3" macbook with a cracked screen. Im looking to replace the Lcd and am having a heck of a time determining exactly what lcds are compatible.

The laptop model is A1181, and the lcd that came out is an AUO (au optronics) B133EW01. Any Samsung, LG, or AUO lcd I would be happy to go with. I've been looking on ebay and around the net, all I see is "compatible lcds" for sale, with no mention of brand name, and I'd rather not chance picking up one from ebay with a bunch of dead pixels.

Would an AUO B133EW03 be compatible, or any suggestions on where I can go for this info? Is it worth going Matte? Thanks in advance.

Ebay likely is going to be one of the few options. Besides buying one from Apple (think $1000) you aren't going to find a whole lot of panels that are compatible.

I hope this helps
