    I hit a crack on my way to class and ate it.when I got to class i opened my macbook and the for some reason the ethernet port was dented and the left of the keyboard is like a little bit brighter then the rest of the aluminum, but everything is working OK and the ethernet cord still fits. What should I look out for besides hard drive failure?
    It was in a speck case inside of a hurley laptop bag (both purchased from the apple store) so I am surprised this happened because i didnt fall that hard, but i did fall on my back.

    Any help would be appreciated, if theres anything I can do to prevent anything internal happening down the road, let me know!!
    thanks,
    Terry

    Applecare doesn't cover accidents.

    or... not. lol well idk what to tell you. just be extra careful. might want to check your battery. since it's a Uni MB. see if there are any signs of bad wear?
