    Hi, I have a sad story about a dropped/knocked of the table laptop with a broken display. It's also not working but turning on (can't use a home PC display). Any thoughts on how to get the data off the harddrive? Is there a way (if it works) to plug in a USB from the macbook into my computer to pull the data off? (trying to not pay too much for this) I also have Apple care for 1 1/2 more years, do you know if Apple would transfer to a new Macbook?

    Any other ideas on how to get some money back from ebay selling, etc? (bought from Apple store)

    Thanks, Sean

    If you buy a new one, they will transfer the data...may have to pull out the HD and put it in a USB enclosure, but it's pretty easy to do yourself if need be.

    Take the hard drive out the MB and buy a hard drive caddy, if it's that broken you won't be able to transfer the data using the MB, buy a hard drive caddy for the drive (2.5 inchs) and use it transfer it/keep it on there that way.

    I think Apple will give you a partial refund on the unused portion of your Applecare. I don't know how much though.

    Hard drive caddy/enclosure question

    Hi, if I get a caddy/enclosure, will I only be able to transfer the data on a mac or will a pc work too?
