Hey I'm still using a 2008 aluminium MacBook. It's served me well, but I've managed to break the screen quite epically and now I'm expecting it to fall apart at any moment. For those wondering it bounced off the bed and hit a side desk on the way down. It still works with a few more hard drive noises than before. Here's a pic of the damage: My questions are basically to do with insurance. I've never claimed anything off Home Insurance before so I'm a little unsure. I know I'm insured for accidents, the laptop is listed on my insurance as a high price item, and I'm a UK resident. Firstly will they try and repair it? It has a few dents on top of where the hard drive is from the same drop and it's running slower, which makes me think it's going to die on me. Secondly if they replace it is it normal for them to either replace it themselves like for like, or send out a cheque for a new one?
