petergriffin1271282dOne time, I spilled coffee over my bosses MacBook. The other time, I was one-handedly showing someone a graphic and let the MacBook fall 3 stories deep from the balcony.
I was still in apprentice. They didn’t give a shit, the repair are just peanuts, just getting a new one maybe two peanuts.
Shit happens, a company needs to calculate for these things, they are human - we are human.
johnmelodyme7816282dIn my country we tape wire tape on the crack.
orangeesheep2282dAs long as it's still working, you're good to go
C0D468123282dHad a coworker leave earbuds on the keyboard and shut the lid.......
I bet you can guess who won't that fight.
Company just swapped it over like nothing happened, if it's a decent (large) company they won't care.
Small business though, that's an expensive peanut.
Linux44243282dI dont see a problem really
DBX12669282dThe other issue is the screen it self, why is it so god damn dirty?!
It should be legal and socially accepted to carry a whip and lash everybody who tries to "show me something" with their fatty fingers on my screens. Use a pen or something if you really need to point.
Hazarth4785282dYep, shouldn't be an issue at all. Unless you work for a shady company in india. Those tend to cut it off peoples paychecks from what I heard on YouTube (no real experience myself, Im not an indian)
Oktokolo5195281dWow, you really screwed up... by accepting a MacBook!
Tell them the truth and they will probably just get it repaired or replaced.
But you should also try to get a laptop running some Linux distribution for development...
DBX12669281d@erasmuswill A touchscreen for a desk job is useless imho. The "way" from keyboard to mouse is too far for good ergonomics, why would I want to go even farther than that?
And yes, it makes your screen ugly. Also people see a laptop and automatically think "that must be a touchscreen" and start pushing cheeto fingers on it.
