A little while ago.. I posted a thread about my MBP getting run over by a car.. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=448620) Since then.. it's been working fine, it's been on 24/7 since then and its still running great. Suprisingly.. no heat issues either. It's spring break now, so I'm free from school and can take my laptop to repairs or, buy a new MB. I have used MBs a lot as well as my MBP and I find no need to have the MBP other than knowing I have a dedicated graphics card.. even though I dont really have a use for it. It's sure nice to have BUT, if my repairs are going to cost more than $500, I'd rather buy a new laptop. What do you guys suggest? From what it looks like.. (I've got pictures in the old thread... can take more if you guys want) I need to get a new bottom casing.. or maybe just bend it back? The superdrive still makes an eject noise, but I'm not sure if the drive is squished or just the casing. The main thing I'm worried about is the LCD bend. There's a bit of a bend on the top case that looks like something cracked inside.. or maybe just bent. Right next to the webcam, but the cam still works fine. The LCD works perfectly fine as well. Another big reason why I'm considering getting a new computer is because its the 1st generation macbook pros.. I know the best way would be to take it to repairs, but just thought I'd ask you guys first.
