Alright so.. my friend accidenlty like spilled beef fat on my mac and now the lighting is uneven on the keyboards and when its left out in the cold the keys take a while to work. So can i go to the genuis bar and pretend i dont know what happened and get it replaced?
Odd conversation whilst your there?

You: Not really sure what happened
Genius: Well... Theres your problem! There appears to be fat all over your laptop...
You: Oh! really? Didn't notice!
Genius: Now how would fat get on a laptop without you knowing?

I can hardly wait to see what the next thing a forum user will spill on his mac, beef fat is definitely a most excellent choice, well player sir :apple:

When I saw this thread title - I was hoping - genuinely hoping, that somehow scolding hot fat was dumped on it - and I wanted to see how well plastic deformed @ that temp.

Ahh - there's always next time. And for the next time - pics please. :D

Indeed, tomfoolery of this caliber is matched only by the rather outlandish assumption that Apple will merely fix a beef fat-laden beefybook pro out of the kindness of their hearts.

I tip my hat to you, OP.

Get your friend to pay for a keyboard replacement as well as any other damages caused by the accident.

It's always better to have some sort of Keyboard protector on your Macbook Pro to avoid serious damage from accidents like these.

If you go to the genius bar or send it in they will see you spillt something, so they will void your warranty, not repair anything and maybe even charge you a fee for their job.

Wow... just wow.

At least you're being honest about being dishonest I guess...

This needs to be a sticky.

I can't tell you how many times I walked around with a cup of beef fat, almost spilling it on my laptop

Well, the way I look at it is... he can now prove it when he tells people that his MBP is pretty beefy. :D

I'm more worried about how it's going to smell when it gets pretty hot while he's running processor-intensive tasks. ;)

I'm sure the OP is about to find out how much of a good friend he has when he asks the friend to contribute a large part towards the repair bill. :) I also suspect that if he ever sells the MBP, the buyer won't be a vegetarian. :p

Oh wow.. Just... Wow...

Can't stop laughing at this one.

Notice how it's always a "friend" who spills (said random liquid) on the macbook?

In recent times, 'random liquid' = beef fat, tears, rain. Wonder what's next. ;)

Sometimes I wish I was working at Apple, doing their hardware repairs, because they must have tons of great stories!

No you cannot.. They will charge you no matter what lie you tell them. Good luck in life thinking that's the way you're going to get through everything.

Wow... just wow.

I say kudos for being honest about being dishonest. I mean, his "friend" spilled beef fat? WTF was his "friend" doing with beef fat? Would chicken fat have been a better option? I eat more chicken than I do beef so I am curious.
