    Is it possible for a sharp and sudden fall to disconnect the battery in the Macbook Air? My friend just emailed me--her husband dropped the MBA from the kitchen table to the floor (so just under 3'). She has an X icon where the battery icon should be and for the first few restarts, she's had to reenter wireless password information, as well as date/time.

    The MBA works fine when it's plugged in. But there's "a teeny dent in the upper left corner. Really tiny."

    Any suggestions?

    It's possible for all kinds of things to happen. Be grateful that there are no other problems.

    Apple offered her a $750 repair. She has temporarily declined and will seek service elsewhere. For now it is a wickedly expensive desktop.

    But for those that like happy endings...

    Her husband, plagued with all sorts of Puritan guilt, bought her a new MBA. He even went for the 2.13GHz/128GB SSD. Plus she got a free iPod Touch out of the deal since she's a teacher.
