haha, wish I was but I have first-hand experience with this. I dropped my Mac laptop on the floor and shattered the screen so I had to get quotes from the Mac store on LCD repairs. Around $800 for a 2002 Mac, not including anything else. I decided that was a good time to upgrade. lol.

What type of fantasy does this guy have thinking that the entire laptop, much less just the display, is worth $3100? More like $310 but even that is unlikely.

Ragingbear: a little fact-check. LCD repairs for a regular Mac run around $1,000--higher for Macbook Pro's. And Macbook Pro laptops can easily run over $3000. I'm assuming he listed the value of the computer in the police report.

DGL, you are making stuff up. I would suggest you stop.
