    I have an Apple Thunderbolt Display and unfortunately the lower corner of the glass cracked when I moved it. There is no damage to the actual display, it is simply a cosmetic thing on the lower bezel corner. I was wondering if anybody has had something similar happen and how much Apple charged to fix it. I know they just discontinued these recently also, so will they even attempt to repair it?

    It may cost you more to repair it, than it would to buy a new 3rd-party display.

    Whether you wish to spend the money for a small amount of "cosmetic damage" that doesn't affect "the actual display" -- well, that's up to you.

    As stated above, it might be expensive to have Apple repair it. Look for a non working TB display on eBay or elsewhere that you can buy and use the glass from it to replace yours.
