I dropped my macbook pro as well it is dented on the lids corner and my friend clames that they will not repare it is that true? I think it is still under warranty because i bought it at christmas time!
after my newly purchased macpro fell off a 4 feet high desk while its turned off, I found it takes longer for the log in screen to prompt up when I unfold the display or hit any key to activate the system. i remember the log in screen used to come up immediately everytime I tried to activate the system. I haven't detected any other issues since the fall, but it really bothers me since I have had this laptop for less than a week. I wonder if there is anything I could do about it and I really appreciate if you could give me some advices.

i was drunk and checking my email in bed and i fell asleep and when i woke up i saw that my macbook pro had fallen 2 feet onto a concrete floor and had been running all morning sitting there opened up on its side like a V, the case is a little bent, now the seam on the bottom is not perfect, there is a small opening, but otherwise everything seems to be running perfectly... this has been a long time coming i think, i guess i got really lucky, these machines are very solidly built, it absorbed the impact well and with minimal damage

I dropped my MacBook Pro and while closing and opening the lid it makes this weird noise and i cant actually feel that its a bit harder to open and close the lid. Should I worry??? therefore my Mac still works perfectly....
PS: I've been having a problem with the mac for weeks now i hear a tink noise sometimes while i'm typing...

I have a similar question:
I fell on the stairs while carrying my boyfriends MBP. The bottom left corner of the computer is dinged pretty badly. I was told this is right near the hardrive disk and am lucky the computer is still working perfectly. Should I consider replacing the hard drive just incase? Or should it be okay since it is working fine now? We are both students and I don't want his hard drive to crash down the road in the middle of his studies.

1) Good to know you are fine, and was just the MAC that get "damaged".
2) On the other side, if you still have a boyfriend after dropping his MAC, that is a very good sign, your boyfriend really love you. Sorry but I was not able to resist the joke.

My Macbook Pro (out of warranty now just by a bit) has fallen off the couch twice in the past few days. Don't ask me why; I don't know. I guess it was just positioned such that it was able to slide off while I was out of the room.
I see no visible damage, no dents, and everything things to work just fine, so far. My question is, can this damage internal internal components that are shock-sensitive? E.g., the SSD harddrive, the gyroscope (if it has oone), things like this? Should I lookf for a system failure down the line?
I really hate to buy another MBP; this one was perfect, maxed out; the "high-res" version before the "retina" version came out (and I don't see a huge difference).
