dropped recently tripped over power cable, sent to repair (under warranty) didnt mention that it fell, so was fixed for free. if the hard drive breaks then you will have to shell out alot of money probably the same amount as you paid for the entire laptop .:mad:
:lolwut:

Why would you pay, say for example £600 for a new hard drive?

That's rubbish....

That's probably why Apple have that magnetic connector. I wish that other companies can copy it
Apple owns the patent for that

Multiple times. It's fine, but probably a bit pissed off at me.

Only once. I'm more of a "banging it against a wall" person.

Once. Fell asleep watching a film. No harm done!

Been very lucky considering I toss it about so much and sleep with it on my bed 8 nights out of 10.

Twice but it's always been well insulated within the laptop sleeve and my laptop bag. Basically it's only happened when I've dropped my bag whist running for a bus or something. There's still a mysterious amount of scratches on it. I think it's probably when my sis borrows it.

I need to stop leaving it on my bed when I sleep though.

I had a feeling that was the reason.

Many, many times. I think I could probably drop the thing out of a first floor window and it'd survive.

That's why I hang onto it even though its seriously out of date and the battery lasts 40 minutes...

I've bumped it a lot, and stood on the poor thing. Not dropped this one though. I did my last one, once. Someone else dropped my first and broke the casing, but it worked fine. Until my stepmother spilt coke all over it and it ate all the wiring....
