SOS: broke college student with broken laptop!

A metal lantern fell from my ceiling and landed on my laptop.

It was fortunately closed, so the top panel has a small dent but the screen looks shattered and broken (glass is not broken). I have an appointment with Apple but I'm assuming it will be super expensive to fix and not covered under my Limited Warrenty (only bought it 6 months ago).

Is there anyone that does this kind of repair other than Apple? I bought it from Best Buy but without Apple care or the Best Buy protection plan I think that will probably be just as expensive as Apple.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! What do I do??

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Mackenzie,

Sorry about your laptop. I believe any repair from Apple or 3rd party repair services will be costly with parts and labor. It really depends on your budget. Your Macbook Air 13" Early 2014 screen and case replacement can start from $330ish and up. Granted that everything else is working fine and it boots up normally (apart from the monitor), I would just recommend buying a LED or LCD monitor with proper adaptor & cable and plug the macbook air into it. I hope this helps. :)

Hi Mackenzie ,

It is very sad to hear about your laptop. The apple service care is very costly. So the best thing is to replace your screen by yourself. You can purchase the spare part what you required from this website https://www.amazon.com/slp/macbook-pro-s...
