    Can someone tell me is there's any chance of fixing it. I barely had it for 2 months and two weeks ago i spilled milk on it. Now several keys from the keyboard are not working. That's the only problem it has. I have tried it and everything else is working properly. :(

    i'm really sorry but I just had to respond because as also someone who spilled milk on their new macbook air 2 months after getting it, I understand how you feel right now.

    Unfortunately, I think your only option is to take it to the Apple Store and check to see how much it will take to repair. And I really hope you paid with amex or some card that does purchase protection. My estimate came out to $755 but since I purchased my air with my amex and it was within 90 days of their purchase protection, I footed the bill on the card and they reimbursed me a week later. So I hope that is something you will be able to do.

    cheaper than a replacement lcd! These MBA's are like porcelain dolls and replacement parts (really whole sections/components) are expensive! And APPLE is sitting of $12B cash!

    Before you have Apple replace the keyboard, try some of the third party repair folks. MacRestore is very resonably priced and they have done a MacBook keyboard ( dumb a** college son and beer) and a MacBook screen for me. I was quite pleased with turnaround and pricing on both occaisions. Genuine Apple parts as well. Having a Mac repaired through the Apple store is only viable to me if the Mac is in warranty and I KNOW it will be a warranty repair. Otherwise, off to a thrid party repair specialist. :cool:
