There are a number of people who have liquids in the systems or dropped them onto the ground. Is there any accidental damage program you can buy? Sony has one for a fairly reasonable price so I know it isn't something extraordinary. Their policy won't work for things like scratches on the case but it shows a gentleman in a cab with a cup of coffee in mid-air so I know liquids are covered. I think it's $400 for 4 years. I would definitely spring for that.
