    My friend had a squished banana in his bag with his macbook. Some of the banana went in the via macbook CD slot.

    I opened the laptop lid and looked inside. Guess what, the right edge of the laptop, the hard drive and the disk drive are slushed with banana, brown and rotten. I don't even know how it got there. Now we are cleaning it up. It's quite disgusting.

    Just sharing my little story

    A: I hope you de-static'd (sp??) yourself
    B: I hope you removed the battery straight away
    C: His warranty is probably void now

    It's really f***ing disgusting seriously, the right metal edge of the laptop is so dirty. I could take the metal frame out but I would have to remove the logic board etc. So moral of the story

    No banana in bags, ever!

    Maybe a third party authorized repair shop would discreetly clean it and keep their mouths shut. Or a non-apple shop may be able to handle it.

    I think you're going to have to open it up yourself and completely disassemble everything. That way you can make sure you get every single last piece of banana.

    Just out of curiosity, why was your friend carrying a banana and laptop in the same bag?

    and I thought I had heard them all :eek:

    don't bring it to Apple. Just clean it up as best as you can. It'll be ok I think. Water damage would be worse so becareful when cleaning it
