How fragile is the Retina Display?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I just read that it's really fragile, will it be ok to put it into my backpack with the slip part, with my heavy school books?

You should get a padded sleeve for it at least to protect it from impact damage. The Retina display shouldn't really be much more fragile than the old style displays but you should get insurance regardless.

I'll take a pic of the padding in my backpack, and you tell me if it's good enough, it's about half an inch thick, and the bottom is padded as well.

 

My iPod's camera is absolute shit. :/ You can't even see anything.

No matter how padded it is, I would recommend a tight-fitting sleeve as it offers some protection if water gets splashed into the backback and against other items that might be put in there like a charger. Even having a seam in padding can mean that an edge of the laptop can knock against something. A sleeve also means you can carry the laptop somewhere on its own without requiring a backpack.

the retina display is twelve time more fragile than the screen from the previous MacBook Pro. those numbers comes from my repair shop. My retina screen broke after one month. 800 dollars to repair it...

That's obviously false.
