Should I try to get my MacBook Pro fixed through Applecare, even though I broke it myself? Has anyone heard of Apple allowing you to trade-in and upgrade?

I bought a 15" MBP in the spring and have been using and loving it every day since ... but ...
A few months ago I knocked it off of a shelf while it was open and on. Everything still works, but I have to pull the top forward to get it to close and it will no longer stay asleep while closed.
A few people have told me that Apple will fix it (even though applecare doesn't officially cover carelessness) and one person even suggested that I can upgrade through Apple to a new Core Duo model for a nominal fee.
Does anyone have experience with either scenerio?
