    Does anybody know the location of the water damage sensors on the Alu macbook? I might have spilt a little bit of beer on the bottom left hand side of the keyboard last night and if it's voided my warranty I'll be peeved.

    Still works the same, so at least (unofficially) Apple has created a beerproof laptop :)

    I had read somewhere (or dreamt that I read somewhere) that they increased the number of sensors to ~8 in the new laptop. I couldn't find the article in a few mins of searching but I believe this to be true. I do not know the locations but, if the number is correct, you can be sure that they cover the area well.

    What a stupid location for me to spill beer on! I guess I won't be purchasing the 3 year applecare add-on for it when my complementary 12 months runs dry.
