When I bought the iPad I also purchased the black cover for it, and always felt like the cover took away from the whole iPad experience sooo.. Yeah, I took it places without the cover on. Well today I had it sitting on the dining room table playing music when our house keeper walks in.. Thinks it's cool.. Picks it up then drops it right on the tile.
Dent in the aluminum and one single crack down the middle of the screen. Tears later, I call Apple to see what can be done, and for the low low price of $299 plus tax they can replace the screen, and that doesn't include the dented aluminum.. Why do they charge $300 plus when online I can find people that replace it, screen included, for $129.
I can still use it, but I'm absolutely heartbroken, and why does Apple feel the need to completely rip you off on a screen replacement?
This could easily qualify as the worst day of the year for me. My parents told me it was my fault for taking it out of the case, but I haven't so much as even got a scuff on it when using it outside of the case. Blah
