So I thought that it was unsafe and somewhat silly of my to be using my MBP on the coffee table in our living room. My main fear was someone spilling liquid on it, and I really don't want that to happen. My parents had some guests over earlier, so I decided to do a bit of a tidy up on the desk in our office (it has my dad's PC on it...how I was tempted to push it off the edge, that would've cleared some space ) and soon I was comfortably sitting there using my MBP. At this point, my mum comes in with a can of Coke that she'd just opened for the guest's bratty little kid that everyone wanted to **** (it was being a pain, really). I was reading up on some news and something caught her eye, and she pointed at the screen, not noticing it was with the same hand the can was in... To my horror it started tipping. First things first, I nudged her hand just enough so that absolutely NONE of the liquid went anywhere near the keyboard. She realised what she was doing and freaked (many, many curse words). At least none, absolutely none of it seeped into the keyholes. Hooray. My main concern was the fact that the power button was clearly covered, and there was a little that had fallen onto the hinge. In all, it was maybe 20 or 30ML of liquid (it's not like she up-ended it, haha). I've wiped her down (...the computer that is), made sure theres nothing left in/around the power button or hinge, have turned it off, and have taken the battery out as a precaution. I know I should wait a few days before turning it back on...I know the logic board and everything is located on the left-hand side of the computer, underneath the W-E-R-T-Y keys, which is on the opposite side to where the spill was. What I'm wondering is, where could any liquid have possibly gone if it went into the hinge/power button? The power button on my MBP fits snugly into the case so I'll be surprised if anything did get past it. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a pain in the ass little brat to hit (just kidding ) and a mum to kindly lecture about how I didn't pay $400 in AppleCare barely two months ago for no reason!
