    So my niece spilled Coke all over my keyboard of my 2010MBP back in december, but it didnt stop working so i never thought anything of it. Today it wouldn't turn on. Took it to apple warranty was finished and they said it needed a new logic board which would be 630 including tax and everything. I didnt see the point, and decided to upgrade to the top rMBP :D, but now i'm wondering how can i get my Data from the old MBP, i had a Vertex 3 240GB in it.

    Put the old drive in an external drive enclosure and connect it to your MBP.

    Pull the drive and put it in an external USB case.

    If you know the password, that shouldn't be a problem. If the drive is in good shape, you should even be able to boot from it.

    I think password is not required if you don't boot from it, and you can still read the files.
