Forgive me for the monotony of the topic, but I've no encounter will AppleCare or servicing thus far. I volunteer on staff with a local church's youth group. I was talking to some of the students one night when one of the girls randomly reached out and unclipped the buckle on my InCase Sling Pack. My Powerbook landed with a dull thud and made a dent right below the power port. I've yet to purchase AppleCare, and will have until March to do so. Should I go with AppleCare? Or just save my money and pay for it up front when something hits the fan? I did inform the girl that she dented my laptop, but I'm not sure I could have her or her parents cover the damage 2 or 3 years later. All in all, it's a crappy situation since I take immaculate care of my photography, video and computing equipment, but I'll end up paying for somebody else's life lesson. All advice is appreciated. EDIT: Forgot to mention that this happened a few weeks ago. So far so good on performance. My fan seems to always turning, but this seems to be normal.
