    Hi,
    Today when I did go to get my kid from school I did close the lid on my new Macbook Pro 13" 2016.
    When I did get home after about 30min and I did open my lid I did notice some kind of liquid mark (like a finger print) almost in the top left corner of the screen. (See the red marking on the attached image.) so I did look down on the aluminum body and I did notice a liquid drop. (See the red marking on the attached image.).
    I'm guessing that the mark on the screen is from the aluminum body and that the screen did get the mark when I did close the lid.

    I did take a shower before I did go to get my kid, but I did not notice that I did dripped something on the MBP. I could also bee some kind of booger drop.
    But anyway the drop is from me as I don't think that the liquid drop magic get there from the screen or the aluminum body. As I was home alone.

    The liquid did not go anywhere else, not on the trackpad or on the keyboard, only on the body and the screen.

    Should I bee worried that my MacBook Pro 2016 is liquid damaged? or is it safe?

    Use a microfiber cloth lightly dampened to clean it - you're fine

    I did exactly that and the cloth did not even get wet, not what I did notice anyway.

    It's liquid damaged if you spill a few ounces of water into the keyboard, down the vents, etc. Aluminum isn't permeable, and the thing can take splashes like that all day.

    Sorry, but kinda irrational to worry about a single droplet on materials that by itself could withstand being fully submerged underwater for years (slight exaggeration but...)

    You could splash water all over it and it'd be fine. Just don't let measurable puddles enter the cracks between the keys. Don't punish a kid over this, it's the modern day equivalent of "all your games on here are slowing the computer down!"

    It's fine. I spill droplets of eliquid on my computer a lot, sometimes directly on the keyboard by accident. As long as you don't flood your computer, your fine, just wipe it immediatly. I suggest a warranty through square trade though, very cheap and it covers accidental damage protection, and I've used the company for awhile and have nothing but good things to say about their customer service/company.

    Agreed. I've seen many splashes and such on computers, but the only time it's ever been a problem was when my brother spilled a massive amount on his. Like 16oz glass.

    I already have a accidental damage insurance. I only pay 150 euros (150 usd) if the machine gets broke and I'm getting a new one.

    You're fine! FYI, Apple even recommends cleaning the computer with a slightly damp cloth.

    Seriously, is this a troll thread? The substance did not come anywhere near an electrical component. Glass is nonporous, end of story.:mad:

    My cat sneezed all over my fancy 2016 MBP today. It still lives. I believe you will be fine.
