I searched for other sad liquid spill stories but none of them involved a Red Bull and Vodka cocktail, so I thought I would ask for your much appreciated help. I purchased a black macbook in July and bought the Applecare Protection Plan. On saturday, a friend (now former friend) spilled his cocktail all over my macbook. I quickly dried it, removed the battery, turned it upside down, and searched for people's tips. Now it is Monday and I am looking for the best strategy to save my beloved macbook or to get Apple to help me out. The Applecare plan doesn't SPECIFICALLY list liquid damages, but it does not cover accidental damages (i'm assuming this falls under that). Can anyone confirm? How long before I should put the battery in and power on? Is 2 days enough time? Assuming its broken, is there any chance at all that the Geniuses won't detect liquid damages and my warrantee is not voided? Is it possible to replace anything for less than the cost of buying a new macbook? Please help me - this incident has really gotten me down, and I hope that Apple's excellent customer service reputation will hold true.
