    Whoa...how did u manage so many dents in there?? :eek:

    My 2 yrs old MBP has just 1 tiny scratch at bottom and that also was done when I gave it for warranty repair.

    Anyways...there is no harm in showing to Apple for warranty...at the most they can refuse. There is nothing to lose.

    And if 1 store refuses...u can show it in another, who knows an angel mac genius will help u ;):apple:

    Do they not log notes against your serial number, so if you go to another store they see what the last store has said!

    There is evidence that the display and hinge suffered from high strain, probably from a fall. I wouldn't be surprised if they refuse to honor the warranty because of this.

    But you should still try. Were the screen imperfections present before the damage happened?

    Dunno...coz I had called twice for my MacBook Pro graphics failure to apple. And the 2nd time I called, the phone service guy didn't have a clue of my history.

    Later on I went to apple store to get it replaced under warranty.

    It seems pretty likely that this damage is the source of the white spots. I'd be surprised if they cover any of it under warranty, but as the others said, it's worth taking in to see what Apple says.
