    None for me, either.

    I'm surprised how many spill accidents occur, being that they are almost 100% easily preventable simply by not drinking or putting drinks down within close proximity to the MBP.

    i'm kindof surprised Apple hasn't made their laptops spill resistant yet.
    how hard would it be to put a layer of something to prevent water from getting into major stuff through the keyboard?

    Lenovo ThinkPads have had spill resistant keyboards for years. I'm surprised Apple hasn't copied them.

    Don't worry about it.

    I doubt that your poll will be statistically valid but that doesn't mean it isn't interesting.

    Dropped from 2 feet on the hinge, a lamp fell and dented a speaker grill, a paper clip got into disk slot, and the glass screen scratched from closing it on a stapled bunch of papers. And it still works as new.

    I was trying to vote for multiple options. Others say "none" should've been an option. Oh, well.

    Anyway, I spilled bottled water on my poor MBP twice and stepped on it once. I dropped it God knows how many times. But it's working well as if nothing happened.

    The MBP case is already right on the edge in terms of heat dissipation. I suspect that any sort of protective layer under the keyboard would push it right over and make our relatively quiet notebooks into Harriers.

    it's one of the hardest things to seal complex electronics. the hardest thing would be engineer the cooling system on a sealed box!
