    Hello!
    I have an early 2009, 17-inch MacBook Pro. Today I noticed what looked like a small hair on the screen, but when I tried to wipe it off, I discovered it was actually a tiny crack in the screen (that extended the entire length of the screen when I touched it).
    I have a few questions about this. First, will Applecare cover this? I have Never dropped, hit, or damaged the computer. Second, if they won't, how much will it cost to replace it?
    Third, is this a common problem? Like does this happen ofter on larger screens?
    Thanks!

    Applecare probably won't cover it.

    Screen replacements will probably run you several hundred dollars from Apple.

    i'd either deal with it (assuming it doesn't have potential to get worse), purchase a screen and attempt to replace it yourself, or pay apple to fix it depending on your will to spend and what not.
