    Hey everyone,

    I had a tea spilled on the behind of the screen of my mbp about 3 hours ago. I had disconnected the power, closed the mbp and used vacuum cleaner where the body and screen intersect, and kept it closed.

    Now I turned it on to look at the advices. I could not able to find anything about behing spillages.Now I am typing from mbp and everything seems fine so far. Should I do close this for a few days? since I have no other computer it would be fatal for me, also buying another mac/pc(that i do not want after i buy it :) ) would also be fatal for me.

    What are the odds happening nothing?. the damages can be seen from the first second? or they can be seen later if i keep using it?

    thanks in advance.

    Why not open it up and check to see if any liquid or residue remains? It's not that hard, just a few screws.

    short of putting it through an ultrasonic cleaner in 3 months it could die again.
