    It looks all shiny and new now- but I will eventually spill stuff on the keyboards. Are the new macbook kb's any better with crumbs and coffee?

    Try telling that to apple when you're attempting a warranty claim.

    Thanks I'll buy one of those.

    Now can anyone suggest a fertility clinic that can help reconstruct my fried- uh, appendages after having the macbook sitting on my lap for the last 5 hours?

    No medical referrals forthcoming ... think of the money you'll have readily available to spend on items other than exorbitant college tuition expenses you won't be paying for. :)

    Or you could just not drink coffee near your MacBook. If i'm drinking near my computer i always keep it to the side and turn to drink. Even move away from the computer so i'm not over it. Even if the drink spills it won't spill on top of the laptop.

    Common sense could go a long way.

    Anyone know if you can get those silicone keyboard key covers to fit European (UK?) keyboards i.e. the ones with the Tetris-block shaped return key?

    I do the same thing, only in my case, it's green tea instead of coffee.
