    haha wow are you ready to listen to my story? first let me tell you... we need to sue apple. the problem is water condensation. a hot battery, cpu fan, cold room and charger will create your laptop too start steaming up! beleive it or not! they could have put a thin layer on the aluminum to absorb water.. also this is not covered under warranty so sad.... so back to my story.. thats why ur stuff gets fried.. ugh! well my laptop was dead... no charge no dim.. i dried it for two days and open it up and saw residue and cleaned it with cotton and alcohol. put it back together.. and now i got my charger! very dim! light green!! and 1 LED flash.. lets pray it works :((((

    You are not supposed to take your computer with you into the sauna.

    Newbie, 1 post says enough.:rolleyes:

    I am living and stayed in a lot of humid and hot countries, have yet to see any damage done by humidity.

    If you take care and don't take it into the sauna :p as the above poster (Leman) said it is not going to have issues as you said here.

    Uh… water condensation is a problem for every electronic product.

    Anyways I've used it in a cold environment… the issue is humidity, so I'm wondering why you're using your Mac in a fridge?

    Yes/No, didn't you see the news on the new Sony tablet, saw it on BBC yesterday I think, they submerged it in water, and it's good to go, well, maximum 30 minutes.

    Tablet, not Laptop, don't know, BBC's Click didn't say.

    Edit, I guess they used normal water, I get your point though, distilled water won't damage electronics.

    This is complete BS. Go ahead and sue Apple, I'm sure the courts would love a good laugh and you wasting their time.

    If there is liquid in your machine, there is only one way it got in there. Whether it was you or somebody else - it was somebody.

    Tech specs say non-condensing humidity of 10-90%. Obviously that was not met.

    I used my Mac in Japan which is extremely humid in summer but had no problem.
    Did you have like moisturizer going off in your room :rolleyes:

    And about the waterproofness, I have to say America is quite late on that.
    Most tablets and cell phones have been water proof for years like in Japan.
    Even before iPhone came out.

    I hope one day Apple would put such thing on my iPhone.
    You wont be able to control it under water but at least you can use it in the shower or drop in it water.

    His issue was 4 years ago, so any resolution probably already occurred.

    Maflynn already replied to that one so I didn't include that one, fact is, it's still a 4 year old thread.
