I just shattered my new 27 iMac

my fault, question: is my negligence covered under the warranty. It was 1 day old?

If you paid with a credit card it may have built in insurance.

Else it's no different than wrapping your brand new car around a pole.

Of course we want to see a picture.

Apple are probably no more responsible for this than Ford would be if you bought a new Focus, then drove it out of the dealership and into a tree.

However, they have been known to be pretty sympathetic in the past relating to damaged iPhones, iPods even in cases where there was clearly zero liability on their part.

It sucks though, I hope you get your problem resolved and that your story ends well

EDIT: Someone else used the same car analogy as me.

My sincere condolences.....but also thanks for making this thread. It will make me take a deep breath - then SLOWLY and carefully open and set up my mac when it arrives. My excitement is getting to me, so i needed to come back to earth a bit. Best wishes on getting a replacement.

On the old iMacs you could replace the front glass.

he joined mac rumors yesterday i am thinking troller. he had photos of it (2012 imac) in the other thread that he started,but no photos of this or how he shattered it.



this is his other thread with photos;


http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1509625


now I understand he may be upset if he really dropped it. and when we asked for a photo and a how did it break? That he did not bother to answer due to his sorrow.. I do find it a bit odd that his first thread was the new iMac has bad whites then his next thread is I broke my new iMac.

This is bull, it's so obvious. ANYONE who dropped a 27" computer would post pics showing the destruction. I've seen worse trolls in 48fps in IMAX 3D.

Not covered and I somehow find it doubtful that it happened.

Without pictures this post is suspect.
If you truly need some help, show us.

Otherwise stop wasting peoples time with negativity.

How the hell do pictures help answer his question? All he asked is if it would be covered - the answer is no... Nowhere did he ask about how/how much/where to have it fixed etc. You guys want pics for the same reason people slow down at a car crash on the interstate...
