Hey, I have a dilemma for you guys, and i would love to hear your advice. Basically, I have the 2009 macbook pro, but as I was sitting on the table outside, someone knocked over a cup of water, and it went inside the vent of my MBP. I didn't realise for a few seconds, but when i did the first thing that I did was lift the laptop off the table and wipe the underneath (not realising that it had just flooded in through the vent at the back). At this point, it was still working, however I turned it off as soon as I new the liquid was inside the laptop, took the case off and put it on the aga to dry out, I left it for a fair few hours, and then tried turning it back on and to my surprise it did, and everything loaded as normal. However when the battery died, I tried plugging it in, and it did not work. This is where I come to my conclusion, I took it to the apple store, and they gave me some ******** (I think) about the whole thing having water damage, and it would cost around 900 pounds to fix (along with the HDD + display), and it wouldn't be worth it. Now, I think it is the ac/dc converter for the laptop, what does everyone else think? Also, would it make a difference for turning on the laptop if there was no battery present? That's pretty much it! P.S It's the intel 2.8ghz spec, the one just before the i5 version came out.
