I have a 17" MacBook Pro (3,1) - the 'Late 2007' one that has fallen victim to a faulty nVidia graphics card. Now I'm sure you all know that Apple extended the warranty to 3 years for this problem because of all the bad publicity it received back then. The thing is that this is no ordinary case, I smashed the screen on this laptop accidentally over a year ago and since then it has been happily working with my external monitor (it's on all day when I'm awake, every day, so I'm surprised that it's lasted this long to be honest). I can't call Apple until Tuesday (as it's a bank holiday tomorrow), so thought I'd ask on here if anyone has a similar instance when the laptop has a smashed screen and Apple have still honoured the warranty (or lack of in this case) for the rest of the machine? I've had some great experiences with Apples warranty and repair system, and I really don't think I'm out of my rights asking them to repair this machine even though it has a smashed screen because I know that the screen had nothing to do with the graphics card failure - but are they going to accept that? Any advice would be appreciated.
