I looked all over online and I can't find how much a hinge would cost. I took my macbook out of the sleeve today and while I was doing this I nicked the black plastic (cheap, fragile, ripoff) hinge. There is a small dent, and I'm planning on keeping this baby for another 4 years at minimum. I think I might eventually get the hinge replaced if it is not to expensive. It's only a small nick so I'm not sure if it is worth it. I have applecare, but I doubt they will replace it since it is my fault. Is there anything in the hinge that can get damaged? Its dented in about 1-2mm about a cm from the left side.
