How much will this repair be?

I have a 13-inch, early 2011 Macbook Pro (unibody) that fell out of my backpack and onto a sidewalk. It was in a neoprene sleeve, which helped, but the aluminum screen cover (the part with the white Apple logo on it) is rather dented. The laptop works fine, and there are no cracks on the screen at all. However, I am interested in getting this part replaced, and I have some questions about cost.

I called my closest Apple Store and asked them for a rough idea how much this would cost, and they wouldn't even guess, instead insisting that come in person and get the estimate there. However, this store is a 160 mile round trip, and I'd like to somehow get an idea how much I am looking at cost-wise before I drive that far.
Does anyone have any idea how much Apple would charge for this repair? I know about other Macbook Pro repair sites (like myservice.com), but I am just curious what Apple charges, so I have a basis for comparison.
Thanks, as always, for any insight you can offer.
