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??

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. :)

Thank you for the useful information, helped in the repair, besides, I’m currently studying to be an electronics repairman, I’m preparing an essay on laptop repair right now, homework help helps me a lot in my studies, but the information presented here is also very useful. I was surprised how often laptops get wet. Repairing a MacBook in an official service will certainly not be cheap. If you have the opportunity to buy parts and repair it at home, then it will be more economical. On this site you can find detailed instructions on how to do this.

Ya I think its just the plastic casing that might be shattered or broke into few pieces. The main lcd panel should be fine and undamaged. I replaced mine on 2014 macbook pro getting parts of amazon and was able to fix it under $50. I checked with apple store and they were charging me $450 and taxes not worth it for 5-6 years old laptop. There are lot of videos on youtube where they teach to change the plastic cover which again i believe is broken for your mac air. You obviously need replacement lcd plastic cover/case and heat to remove that old broken plastic cover. Using heat gun or hair dryer would help you to lose that glue less sticky and easy to remove broken plastic cover. Its fairly easy since I have done it, but it definitely saved me well over $350.
