    Default Not an Apple fan, but this makes me sad.

    Asked today if I can salvage the photos and repair this...

    What the f**k?
    Did it jump off a rooftop or did his missus find his gay porn stash?

    Ouch.
    How did it get that damaged?
    Now that's going to be expensive, photo's will be simple enough but repairing? Parts will be from the US probably, and very little chance of after market / oem bits.
    Write off in my opinion.

    data recovery should be fine but i doubt you will repair that in a cost effective way, how did that happen?
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Got the photos off using HFSExplorer, all 22Gb of them!

    iTunes Library can sing, theirs is huge.

    No Apple Care or insurance, so going ahead with the repair.

    Cheapest I've seen the screen is £100 second hand. New they are £280.

    The screen bezel is £40.

    Straightening out the Ally I'll use a series of clamps and hope for the best.

    The state of it is due to a row and the husband picking it up and launching it across the room.

    It'll never be perfect, but hopefully I'll get it better.

    I might replace the leg for the £12 too.

    Total for repair IRO £400.

    What a fucking twat. What kind of child throws stuff across the room during a row. A real man would have thrown the wife across the room.

    Surprised they didn't try to get it on insurance somehow. It's also a bitch to put the front panel back on without getting any dust in there, had to disassemble and reassemble one the other day for water damage.

    You'd be surprised if you took it to Apple of a Apple Authorised Service provider.

    The price of a display is cut drastically if you send the old one back, glass is only like £40 a rear housing is about the same (although a rear housing replacement is a bitch of a repair)

    If you have the serial number I can get you prices from Apple

    Thanks
