    Yesterday night, I accidently splashed a little bit of water on my macbook keyboard;
    It was in the vicinity as I opened my water bottle, which splashed some water on the keys.
    I cleaned everything off, turned off the computer, took the battery out, dried it off, etc.
    Then I proceeded to turn it back on, and see the damage.
    I knew I couldn't have gotten lucky, and had no damage...

    So, last night, none of the keys worked.
    I tested it this morning, and some of the keys worked.
    Actually, the majority of them worked. 'G','H','R','Y',and 'C' were the ones that I remember not working.
    After school today, I took it to the local mac store so they could look at it.
    I told them that some of the keys weren't working, and that I suspected it may be water damage.
    I backed up my hard-drive just in case.
    What do you think they'll charge me to fix it?
    I know that Applecare doesn't cover H2O damage, which is a bummer.
    I'm hoping it won't be a whole lot, seeing that most of the keys work... =/

    Did you ask them to give you an estimate before working on it? Apple technician, is like any technician - they charge a lot. In my experience, their labour is almost $100/hr. Parts from Apple are cheap either.
