    Fluking hell! And that's not been dropped - that's an impact crater on the screen it's been hit or something has been thrown at it more like.

    Stick it on a small platform in the middle of a large white room in the Tate Modern - you'll make a fortune.

    Fell, opened itself on the way to the ground and executed a perfect swan dive onto something large, solid and about the size of a cricket ball which was coincidentally on the floor under it. Either that or someone's been playing french laptop cricket at the weekend.

    I would bet that they slammed the lid closed on something. Cant figure out the situation where it falls out of a bag, opens up and hits something pointy.

    I like your theory outtolunch whatever it 'fell' on it must have gone with a hell of a crack as the dent on the lid is tiny.

    I'm more willing to be it was left open by a couch, forgotten about and was stepped on (probably drunkenly and on class A drugs) when the user got up!

    We had two teachers reverse over their laptops in the space of one week, neither of them looked as bad as that. However, they were closed and in their laptop bags so I suppose that made all the difference.
