I bought this sealed and new 3 months ago. I'm always careful with my devices and never had problems with them. How lucky am i that I broke something that's the most expensive and something I take care of the most. I'm also lucky that I have no idea how this happened too.
This just happened when I opened it after it was just fine an hour ago. I already took this to the service center and they said theres a crack and I might pay around $700 for the new screen. I might have closed it and there was something that smashed at the screen. That's impossible since wouldn't I hear and notice that something blocked it and considering how bad that damage, I should notice it! Or even see the object that obstructed it when I opened the laptop. The staff told me that i could talk to apple directly so they could cover the repair cost. I dont know if she just said that to make me feel good cause i really was about to cry when I was talking to her.
I just really have to cry at this point because I cant afford to buy the replacement screen. So the $1200 I spent 3 months ago (that i still havent paid in full yet) was just thrown in the trash.
I know this cant happen by itself (like on this thread i read: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/macbook-pro-lcd-broke-not-my-fault.2050531/)
But its just really extra frustrating when you're sure you didnt do anything wrong. Maybe this is supposed to happen to me so I can work harder and get more jobs. I took 3 jobs at the same time for the past few months just to afford this laptop. Theres nothing else I could do really but would love to just hear your opinions.
