In US they wouldn't be able to make you pay for the computer and you could actually sue them. That's why incidents like this usually result in "You okay? Good. It's cool."
If you have homeowners or renters insurance then you should talk to your agent about this. You have liability coverage that may cover the cost of the computer. If you end up paying for the computer yourself then the damaged one is yours. You should politely suggest that the old damaged computer is yours since you paid for it. They can strip it of the software. Don't know your working environment, so be careful with this one. You don't want to get fired to boot. Perhaps it can be repaired at a reasonalbe cost and then you would have a computer.
