    Am I able to send in my MBP for a new casing? My dog knocked it off of a chair and it fell on our tile causing dents on both sides where the front bumpers are protruding on the edges..

    I am furious and this is driving me nuts as my laptop is only 4 months old..

    Thanks for your time!

    You can send it in, but the repair won't be free.

    i had a unibody macbook 13" and i left it on top of my car and literally gunned it and took off. (i was 18 and dumb) It was a very costly mistake, not only were the top and bottom case completely dinged up, the logic board was also broken. I brought it in, they sent it out to be covered under Applecare--then they called me and said no way. It was an 1100 dollar repair.

    I believe the top case was 400$?

    The hardware is completely fine, its just the bottom of the keyboard casing. I realize its unibody, so if I'm reading your post correctly I'm going to have to shell out $1100???

    Top cases are typically around $200, not including labor or whatever service charges they pile on ...

    The price of fixing the casing may be more than it is worth, but I think online there are some third party sites, maybe ifixit.com, which you can purchase the casing from for less if you don't mind installing yourself.
