Which could mean logic board replacement, keyboard replacement and/or other components. It'll cost an arm and a leg.
- If you bought with a Credit Card. Check what sort of extended warranty they provide on purchases if any. Then check if it covers accidental damage.
- You can still get a fair amount for it non-functional on eBay (sell for parts or not working). Then buy the same model used. It'll probably be cheaper than having Apple do the repairs.
- You can go with a shop that deals with liquid damage. You want a specialist. Otherwise you'll just be swapping parts and it will again cost too much and would make more sense to sell. Most techs don't have the skill or training. I know there is some guy in New York who does this and publishes Youtube videos. But I don't recall the name. A logic board repair may or may not be possible.
- Sell it and buy a the latest refurbished or new model from Apple.
Edit: Having someone try to repair the damage. If possible will likely take a long time and you'll probably have to ship it. If you need this computer for work. I'd say to cut your loses, sell it and get a replacement. Logic board replacements are too expensive to make sense. Perhaps a keyboard replacement. Even that is expensive. Especially if Apple did it.
Yep, plus if you send it into Rossman, make sure you pen a fake sob story about going to the Apple Store and they charged you $4000 to fix it or something. That'll ensure it'll go to the front of the line so he can feature that in on his next clickbait video and you'll get it repaired faster.Rossmann Repair Group https://www.rossmanngroup.com
@ OP an Apple or Apple authorized repair will mostly if not always be the most expensive, as any part they find liquid on will be replaced. Also, if it's a USB-C MacBook Pro, it has fewer individual components than ever before, and I would expect the repair to be over $1000.
I will repeat @velocityg4's advice about finding a local repair shop that offers liquid damage repair for Mac. Until then, leave your Mac off and unplugged.
He’s good at what he does and gives out the information for free (via YouTube at least). I’ll give him the click bait if he wants it.Yep, plus if you send it into Rossman, make sure you pen a fake sob story about going to the Apple Store and they charged you $4000 to fix it or something.

He's good at what he does but booooyyyy does he hate Apple products.
