    Logic boards aren't supposed to bulge like that are they?

    Click for more photos. If I remember this correctly, this guy dropped his MBP when he had some kind of peripheral plugged into the USB port. The logic board cracked near the case and ballooned up near the optical. Those little pieced of blue board around the USB port were supposed to be connected.


    Ouch.

    Ouch. That had to be one expensive repair, as Apple doesn't cover clumsiness.

    Thing's still sitting in our shop, hasn't gotton repaired yet. If the customer decides to fix it its probably going to be over $1200.

    Could be worse, I mean, he could have had his girlfriend squirt on it.

    Check this scenario out.

    Say you drop your mbp, but everything still works. But one day a real issue occurs while the mbp is still under warranty. Will Apple then blame it on you or wat?

    Only if they knew it was dropped (massive dent?). They can hardly pin it on you if they don't know how the damage was caused.
