    A few days ago I spilled a little beer on the right side of my uni mbp's keyboard. I immediately dried it with clothes and it wasn't all that much. I shut down the notebook and dried it further. After a good dry, i've tried to put it on, and everything seems to work. The only problem is, some keys stick and the backlit on the right side of the keyboard seems to be weaker than on the rest. Should i try to repair/clean it myself or go to an APR and ask them to replace my keyboard. I am pretty sure the beer didn't get any further down the mbp, cause it was very little.

    And does anyone know what the costs are to check for damage/replace the keyboard, because i don't think Applecare will do this for free.

    I hope someone can give me some information, because after reading like tons of topics about it, i still didn't find an answer that suits me and i'm scared to death my new (june) mbp is damaged...still shaking like mad...
