How bad do the dents look on my 2010 MBP?

    Today I found out my Macbook pro suffered some dents. I been using this MBP for a bout three years now.

    I wonder how detrimental this is to my MBP. Do you think this dent has caused any internal damages?

    It's impossible to know if it got any internal damage.

    If everything is working, likely not. Just hope nothing pops up in the future.

    My wife had dents on her old 2010, at one point the DVD stopped working. That's why I put a case on my rMBP.

    Judging from your picture, that's where the battery is. I think you'll be fine.

    Check for a concussion first.

    Honestly, not sure why you would think damage like that would have caused damage to something on the inside.

    And Yourself?
    It honestly doesn't look that bad. Likely to happen if you carry it around places. I highly doubt it did any damage internally!

    Eventually it is bound to happen. I put a tiny (<1mm) dent in my new retina by just tapping it on the corner of the wall. It is like any new product, the first scratch/dent feels awful but after that you relax a bit and can enjoy the product a little more :)

    The aluminium cases dent easily but look much better than plastic, it is a trade off. I very much doubt that there is any internal damage though your resale value probably took a bit of a hit.

    That's got to make your heart sink. Luckily I've never suffered from a dent to any of the MacBooks I've owned. Is it that easy to put a dent like that in one? They seem pretty rigid to me.

    Got much bigger dent than that in in the top of my MBP, it got knocked off the desk the day i got it, not had any problems still works fine, and if yours is working ok i wouldn't worry about it. Only downside is would probably effect resale value.
