    Spilled a vanilla latte all over it about 3 weeks ago. Screen immediately screwed up (lighting issues, pixels....the whole works). Apple wanted $800 flat to "begin" to fix it. If the logic board had one drop of liquid on it, it'd jump to $1240. No thanks.

    Sent it to MacService.com, and got the screen replaced and the whole computer diagnosed - with shipping included - for $325. Arrived today. Looks PERFECT. Kudos to that company. I'm really impressed.

    You guys should do what I do with coffe, put it in one of those thermos's which is equivalent to a cup of coffe, and if anything does spill, the hole is small enough to only let a tiny bit out.

    I spill coffee on my mac all the time, it's almost like a christening for it!:)
