    So a few days ago I was charging my iPhone via the USB port of my Macbook Late 2013 Retina. Not knowing that the charging cable got stuck underneath the macbook, I lifted up my iPhone holding it loosely after which it dropped out of my hand due to cable being too short and it hit the bottom of the Macbook display. The black bottom layer has a small scratch on the black bottom layer of the screen but as you can see, the screen no longer functions properly with a wide vertical stripe right above the spot.

    Do you guys think this is cable damage or should the screen be replaced? What kind of costs would we be looking at? (not sure why the pic got uploaded upside down)

    That is impact damage and will require the screen to be replaced.

    Congrats, you now have, depending on which way you'd like to look at it, dual monitors, or a new mac mini.
