    AppleCare only covers manufacture defects or problems. User clumsiness/carelessness/error is not covered.

    Apple Care won't cover it. Call your home insurance. Ask them whether it is covered, and against what degree of user stupidity.

    you could go to a company called safeware. they've been around for about 25 years and is recommended by apple (at least from the apple guy I talked to). One year of coverage for accidental damage is about $70-$80 depending on your configuration. Well worth it IMO.

    House insurance is the way to go, if you ask me.

    Oh damn, the logic board has failed on my 3-year-old laptop. Oh damn, dropped it down the stairs... :D

    It also doesn't cover if you fall asleep working on a project and break your LCD display. Not that I would know by experiance or anything...
