so i closed my space grey 2017 macbook pro 13" ( i opted for the model without the touch bar) after a lecture and was going to put it in my backpack , but when i closed it, the edge of my zip up hoodie got caught in the macbook (picture the macbook eating my hoodie zipper). It was a very short part of the hoodie just above my abdomen that got caught so i simply pulled it out and closed the macbook all the way.
while at the library, i notice a scratch on the screen next to where the facetime camera is; it looked like a stray mark you make with a pen on a paper about 1.5cm long, of course i said WTF?! howTF!?
i immediately realized one of the teeth from the zipper must have scratched when i pulled the hoodie. I have a macbook pro 17" that i let my sister have because it was getting too bulky to lug around campus and that thing was as sturdy as a rock, this happened to me with my 17" and it never scratched, I must have dropped that thing at least 5 times from high up on shelves (granted it fell on the carpet everytime, but even so any plastic dell or HP would have gone to shit).
I digress, does anyone have an idea what a new glass screen would cost? and if it would be worth it?
i know iphone screen replacements are for the most part shotty, but macbooks arent touchscreen so i suppose they would be easier to maintainn and would last longer.
I have seen another on this forum who closed the same model space grey macbook with the plug from his ipod earphones caught and it literally punched a hole in the lower part of his screen; i would not replace it unless I literally could not see the letters on the screen, but does anyone know if OWC or any other company besides apple can repair this screen? at leas the glass part of the screen, not the LCD???
NOTE: If you own this computer or similar model be very careful when closing the screeeen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
