I want to know an aproximate of money damages (picture links at the end). I've already hear all types of comments so please don't make me feel worst. I left my macbook in an Incase sleeve yesterday in the roof of my car and left school. In the way to my house it obvioulsy dropped. Long story short, the sleeve has tears and kinda protected the macbook. Now here the damages:
No backlight for LCD (lcd is working though)
I runned hardware test and all is working properly.
The internal metal frame is bent in the cd feeding slot, so I cant put cd inside.
Somehow, the lcd frame is bent too but its wierd because looking at it with bright lights show that the image is perfect, I dont know that its really damaged.
It also has some scratches in the corners and the keyboard side case is bumped in the power button corner.
So do you think you can help me get an estimate? I'm going to drop it off at the apple store in about 3 weeks and I need so save the money so I'm dying to know the costs :(.

Almost $600

I dented my powerbook by falling on top of it in a blizzard on my way back from school. Your damages are actually a lot worse than mine. Apple charged me almost $600 to get them fixed.

Thank you

There is a pretty big diference between the two comments, I invite others to answer.
I was looking at ebay and the hole thing (including the LCD but excluding the drive) was around 380 dlls. Any opinions?
Why do you think the drive is damaged? I think its more the inside metal frame. The macbook still knows there is a drive... I am going to open it up tonight.

Just opened it, the drive is intact, the issue is just the screen and the case scratches.
