    Is it okay? Apple told me "I'm sorry that happened to you" and I need more than that. It was on a couch and there will some covers above it, so when my mom sat down there must have been cushion right?

    Everything appears to be okay, But I wonder if anything inside is messed up...

    (Aluminum MacBook)

    PLEASE HELP!!:(

    If there is nothing noticeable on the outside and the screen is not broken, you should be fine. The new Unibodys are pretty sturdy and unless the frame has been bent the insides should be ok.

    I don't think that you can get it repaired if it is damaged because I'm pretty sure they don't cover that kind of thing.

    But seating areas are generally not good areas to place delicate things.

    Yeah I know, but my dad moved it there, I would never think he'd be so stupid, but yeah. Thank you both. It looks completely fine.

    How would we know? It's in your possession.

    What exactly are you looking for from this thread?

    Yes, it's fine. Did that help?

    Is your mum OK? It must have given her a fright. Go and give her a hug and tell her it's all cool :).

    I want a smart Apple Genius to help me understand if it's alright.

    And I will, it's just, damaging a Mac isn't something I fancy. Ya know?

    I was going to cry if it was damaged lol

    Then you have to show it to a smart Apple Genius.

    Kinda a oxymoron, uh? You'd hope that all Apple Geniuses would be smart, i mean, after all, they are GENIUSES, right?

    Kind funny though! I know exactly what you mean...

    You are sort of like the roommate Adam from Mythbuster talking about who went ballistic when Adam put a cup with a spoon in his microwave.

    Sparked, snorted, and still worked, but Adam had to buy a new microwave because he damaged his roommate's microwave and made it unsafe.

    Seems the MacRumor's community smacked some sense into you, so you can be trained.

    I know what you meant, it's just that even if there were Apple Geniuses here they would have to actually SEE your MB to make sure nothing was wrong.

    But if it's working ok I wouldn't worry.

    It's fine don't worry. Some girl dropped my 2.4ghz macbook on concrete and it still worked great. I can't tell you if it still works today because I sold it, but if it could have withstand a 4 foot drop on it's side on to hard concrete, it can withstand a cushiony hug. :)

    Your macbook is so busted. It will eventually explode without notice. I'm sorry it happened to you, it's the worst thing ever. I hope nothing worst then that happen to you in your life. :rolleyes:
