    My sister walked by my macbook pro and stepped on the magsafe cord thats supposed to stop the computer from falling to the floor, SOMEHOW it didn't and now I have a big scratch on the back of the screen, Would apple fix it because the MagSafe didnt detach?

    How are you going to prove that? It's user damage.

    I doubt they will fix it you have no way of proving to Apple that the magsafe adapter did not detach.

    The MagSafe is a design that attempts to prevent damage. It does not guarantee that damage will not be caused.

    It's like an airbag. You can still die from a crash, but your chances of survival are much better with an airbag.

    That's a real bummer. She must have stepped on it just right for it to drag the computer.

    As long as your computer works, count your blessings. A scratch is no fun, but a broken computer and a repair bill are a lot worse...
