Bad girlfriend! I girlfriend dropped my iPad to a year ago once, but it was okay. She got off the hook easily.

you get two drops? i dropped my mbp and busted my disk drive and they told me applecare doesn't cover drops, but he let me off easy since i'm a poor college student and tear filled eyes are hard to resist.

so anyway i'm not planning on dropping my ipad anytime soon, but can i expect them to help me out with a replacement if i do?

I would say since it's just a dent, u could wait a few months if it's not affecting your performance.

Also, u get two drops in two years. U still haven't completed a month yet. U could any time take it in and get replaced. Why not wait for a couple months in that case..

I thought you could exchange it for any reason for the first 14 days, applecare or not. Just do that.

I would do this as long as the iPad is still working, in couple of months it will probably have some scratches too and then you can just trade it in for a new one, plus you never know if you or someone you k ow might drop it and completely break it, that happened with my iPad 2, my father dropped it and broke the screen, cost $400 to repair. Or you could also just wait until next feb. just befor the new iPad is announced and then sell the new one for more money to buy the next iPad.
