I have the mid 2010 15 inch Macbook Pro with the Hi-Res screen. So my friend slammed the trunk onto my camera bag that had my laptop in it and I guess cracked my screen! :-( I went to Apple and they said in order to replace the screen, they have to replace the entire top part of the laptop since the screen is bonded onto there, etc etc. Is that true? My bf believes there is a way to replace the glass without replacing the top - is there? Because Apple wants $550 to replace it and that is outrageous. Does apple warranties cover physical damage? Or is there a way to replace the glass without replacing the top? or a cheaper option to do so at least? Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
