    Hi everyone. I'm new to these forums so please tell me if I'm doing anything wrong. I was at school today and I tripped over someone else's foot by mistake in the hallway. My Early 2014 Macbook air went flying. I have been babying it with my life because it is literally my most prized possession. But there is nothing I could have done. It was in a rubberized plastic shell and a cushy foam sleeve. Nonetheless, it obviously landed on the zipper and placed a huge dent in the corner of my computer. It seems mostly fine electronically. I am wondering: is it possible that this fall could have slowed my mac down or is this a "it either works perfectly or not at all" kind of thing?" The repairs for the damage are luckily paid for and the body is being repaired on Saturday.

    Since you having the bottom replaced, I would suggest you have the repair shop run a diagnostic test on your Air while in the shop.

    Actually Surprisingly the bottom corner had no damage on it whatsoever other than a couple of scratches. The case is pretty beat up but it spread the shock to the top creed. I just ran the diagnostic test and it said everything other than the power source was okay (and the power source wasn't even connected so that's why). I'll still have Apple run a diagnostic test. Would the shock from the fall destroy/slow anything? Nothing's rattling so I guess that's good. My only concern is that if it had enough force to dent the top it probably was a lot of force.
