I'm a High School student and I accidentally dropped my first gen iPad this morning. Of course it landed on the corner, and the case is slightly dented, causing the power button to be stuck. Their is very little damage otherwise, but it just causes the power button not to work. I'm planning to go into the Genius Bar this weekend and see if I can get anything from them. I've heard stories of Apple giving people a one time replacement for an accident. $300 is just too much for me right now, and it's just a small dent. If anyone has any experience or any advice, let me know. It would be appreciated greatly.
