    Hello there!

    My aluminum unibody macbook pro has dent in it. I have applecare. So, will apple un-dent/repair my macbook pro?

    Thanks in advance,

    Yep, Apple will do it for you, if you fork over $1k

    Your outta luck. Not only do they not cover dents, a dent to Apple is "accidental damage" and is a reason for Apple to automatically reject any real problem. I had this happen to me - went to Apple with a problem and couldn't get it covered because of "accidental damage - and this basically voided your Applecare.

    How bad is the dent?

    Its pretty bad...But what if it wasn't "accidental"...What if my friend deliberately started beating it with a flashlight?

    Also, will they replace a cracked screen or a damaged keyboard?

    And...what do you mean that it would void my applecare? They would just cut off my applecare and I won't have it anymore?

    Applecare only covers manufacturer's defects and issues

    Damage is not covered period

    And yes, they will void your Applecare and your defects will no longer be covered either due to the damage inflicted

    You might could try homeowner's insurance

    I was expecting "beat him with a sock full of Milkbones until he pays." ;)

    Have you tried undenting it? There are several excellent guides on the net telling you how to do that.
