    HI GUYS! Ok, so in need of a lil help! Some nail polish remover spilt all over my keyboard and now it has eaten away at its insides... So my keyboard, mouse pad and speakers do not work! :mad:

    Is it worth trying to fix?? Or is there someone that I could sell to for parts??

    ANY IDEAS!!! your thoughts are much needed and appreciated!

    Does it still boot up? Try attaching a USB keyboard and mouse and then get your important files. Then sell it for parts.

    Try Again

    I agree with PinoyAko, make sure you get all of your important files onto an external hard drive if you can. Then either get another mac with a protection plan or something, or you can always just go grab a PC that is just as good. That way if it breaks, you only lose $700 instead of $2000+. Best of Luck.

    Or just pull out the HDD from the MBP, buy a new one and throw it back in there.

    Pull the hard drive out. Mail to apple for recycling. Buy refurb.

    Find me a PC with the same or better retina display and all the same internal hardware as the 15 inch for $700 and I'll switch asap

    Hook it up to external keyboard mouse and speakers that may be the best way to go and then get a new one when appropriate.

    Do you even remotely know what you are talking about, thats a rhetorical question by the way , No is the answer
