Well, after reading everybody's horror stories on here, it happened to me. My laptop was only a month old, I had it in a sleeve, and managed to drop it. The case near the ports took the brunt of it, warping it back and making the ethernet port now look like a parallelogram (although it still works). The laptop works fine from what I can tell, but I want to repair this and keep my warranty intact. So, I was thinking about taking this to the Apple store and just throwing myself at their mercy and see how much it will cost to repair. If I go this route, they repair it and my AppleCare should stay intact right? I just don't want to give them license to cancel my warranty after paying several hundred dollars or whatever they charge to make it "as good as new". Should I try an authorized service center instead? Any work they do will keep AppleCare intact, right?
