Goddamn fucking dog sent it flying across the room somehow being a crackhead, and now the screen barely stays magneted down.

:mad::mad::mad:

Better yet, replacement part from ifixit? $300

Why the fuck do you need a laptop case?

In all likelihood, he means the body of the laptop. Why else would a replacement part be $300?

Max, how bad is the actual damage (save for the lid magnet)? Is the machine still usable?

I know I shouldn't be laughing too much at the misfortune of others, but when I first read this the mental image was funner (in no small part because I misplaced the phrasing and thought you said "Goddamn fucking dog sent it flying across the room, somehow being a crackhead, and ...")

:facepalm:

Pics enclosed (Large)
Here is a shot of the front right undamaged corner from below


And here is the front left, where the fall damage is


And the right from the front, see how the side is straight vertical?


and the left front, see how the bottom edge is pushed in


and here is the right top of the screen, normal


and the top left, see where its bent in. its also pushed forward a bit, so it keeps the screen from locking down completely.


here you can see the corner coming into contact before the rest

Motherfucking hell :mad:

It still works. My main concerns are A) it wont stay closed in my laptop bag now and B) If something goes wrong with some hardware, them not covering it under warantee because of the obvious fall damage, regardless of it being relevant or not

I just spent $2k on this shit in january :mad:

Dang. I know how bad that sucks. Be careful about it not staying closed or it will end up like mine.



I guess you just have to do your best to keep the weight off the hinges if it ends up opening in your case. That's how mine broke.

Apparently, the concerning part (around the screen) is pretty easily coaxed back into form...

Hrm...
