    Most likely it didn't have a dent. When I worked with an apple certified tech he had to stop servicing computers with any visible damage because the system logged that he had worked on one, later the same computer went to an apple store, and he almost had to pay apple for the parts. I recommend not dropping them, haha.

    Got a macbook pro for grad 2010. Bought a case and not a single scratch on it and works like new. Never going to leave Apple since me and my sister are Apple fans :P so MCP is always good but $$ compare too regular laptops

    Well I finally bit the bullet and purchased a MBP. I picked up the basic 13 inch model. Nothing fancy but I am happy with it.

    Same with my iPhone 4, I dropped in 1 week after buying and went to get it replaced and they did for free no questions asked.... I have a tendency of dropping everything I own, it's a habit I need to get checked out.

    I can't say the same with Dell, I have had my issues with them

    to clarify

    Daughters Mac purchased at an Apple store and serviced at an apple store with little problems (she has a store in close proximity) Sons computer purchased at a Non apple store (Best Buy) as his school is not within 2 hours of an Apple store - it appears that IF NOT purchased at an apple store they simply don't want to provide any service, provide the free updates or have anything to do with non apple store sales. They have made it quite apparent as they have once again declined the FREE OS LION update to my son as the purchase was made over 90 days age ---- our receipt provided to them clearly list the purchse date less than three weeks ago!!! Looks like I'm in for another hour and a half of hold time tonight.

    ^ that's very surprising seeing as i've always had top notch customer service at apple, meawhile best buy like you've mentioned, is filled with straight up idiots that couldn't plug a computer into the power outlet let alone help you fix it.
