    Yep, I've accidentally spilt a small amount of coffee onto my Macbook Pro and I've only had it for 3 months! I realise that my warranty is probably now void though I think it will be worth having Apple clean it up as it is so new. Does anyone know of the approx cost for this? (UK)

    Honestly, I hope you have home contents insurance that might cover it if you want the warranty to be valid still. ( assuming liquid detection indicators gone off and liquid evidence is obvious inside, depends just how small an amount it was )

    Apple will probably charge for a new top case/battery/logicboard, which depending on system could well be £700+ if it's 15" retina dgpu as they won't clean and certify, they'll only replace parts.

    I will have to check my contents insurance I think it is covered. ut it does still work. I am more worried about what happens in the future.

    And yes it is a 15" retina so perhaps I should go down the insurance route

    if it still works fine, insurance probably won't immiedietly be the route want to go down, but if it develops any problem down line it would be.
