    So lets just say that my macbook keys were smashed. not broken off just not working. from being smashed. im also a new poster first time on this website so please be nice. i currently have my macbook which has only bin owned for about 2 months. i started the problem from warter. but not spills. mr clean magic eraser water and then made a problem with the f and the k being stuck some houw. (kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk) (ffffffffffffff) then that night it wouldnt stop so i hit the keyboard a bunch. now its in the shop and hopefully getting fixed. will they see the water? and can they tell its smashed? its under 90 day service and 1 year warranty. god help me.

    It is a good possibility that they will see it and charge you do fix it. If you spilled fluid on it, there is a possibility that you tripped the liquid sensors. If they are tripped Apple won't help you and you will have to pay. Good luck, take better care next time.

    How are we suppose to tell you whether or not the people will notice damage on the keyboard or not?

    well if its a unibody model you probably have to pay more than 100$ because they cant change 1 key only, they have to change the whole keyboard and maybe the case.

    Because the keyboard is all one unit. the specific keys are just basically covers. and if the keys aren't working, replacing the covers does nothing. You have to fix the underlying issue, which is the keyboard, as a unit.

    The unibody and pre-unibody models use, essentially, the same keyboard, I believe.

    You keep asking us things we can't possibly know. If they gave you a receipt, you'll pay what's on the receipt. In your case, nothing. The keyboard is a single unit, so they can't replace just four keys. It's like, if you had a baseball bat and broke part of it, you can't just replace that part.

    Yes, there could be. But the chances are probably very slim. And if they're covering this damage under warranty, I'm sure they'll cover other stuff too.
