Just worry about the glass and ignore the dings on the back as you won't be looking at them :)
Especially when it's in it's new case.......
I'm with Hasty. Just get a new screen and cover. Great advice. What did you buy it for, looks or productivity?
If you can afford a housekeeper than the cost of an iPad is mere pocket change so why all of the drama?
Mine also fail down once I read this forum. My case save my screen.
Sorry to hear about the accident... but just as a matter of interest, did the screen still work after it was cracked, or did it go completely blank?
Look, i don't know where you live, but here in Indiana, when you buy an apple product, if something happens to it, regardless of whose fault, even if i dropped it from a 10 story building, if i take it (or the remains) to the only apple store here in indiana, we get exactly 1 freebe, in other words they take it and give you a new one free of charge, but that new one is it... only 1 freebe...
What a horror story....brrrrrr!
I just don't pick mine up...ever.
