My grand daughter broke he laptop screen whilst using it on the bed and sitting on it later as it was under the duvet. The warranty did not cover this sort of damage. A new screen done by a pro cost £100!! (On a £500 laptop). A DIY screen was about £60. Cheer up, it could be worse! In my case the insurance "excess" is more than £100 so not worth a claim.
There is a sort of insurance rule that says you are never insured for what happens, only for things that don't happen.
When I worked in PC repair we used to get lots of laptops covered by Gold "anything happens" warranties that had accidentally "dropped down the stairs", mysteriously most of these laptops only had a few weeks left on their warranties.
I remember one that had apparently been dropped out of a helicopter whilst the owner was using it to manage aerial photography.
Amazingly the only thing that happened to this was a broken screen and some scuffing, so I doubt it had really fallen 1000ft. In any case that one was still in the repair bay when the company folded, so he probably never got it back
