    What all does the insurance cover? If they cover drops then tell them you were on your way to school and dropped it on the sidewalk or something.

    Stolen but you'll have to file a police report. Depending on where you live they probably won't even come out to your house.

    covers accidental damage, household possessions, and personal property when out and about.

    Hah ya, can't remember much, but briefly remember trying to put the battery back in, which won't go in now. Had to go out and buy another laptop.

    Demon alcohol strikes again! Maybe you should consider one of those rugged laptops next time around!

    Check with the insurance company if you haven't already. I once called up my auto insurance company and started chewing the fat with the agent about my transmission going and he reminded me I had mechanical breakdown. How would I know since my wife ordered the insurance. Out of $3K they covered all but $500. Sometimes you get lucky.
