    When I walked in the front door of my house and there sat my MBP just relaxing on the coffee table as it always does, when my daughter (she is also 5 months pregnant with our first grandchild!) knocked over her glass of hot tea right on the top of my closed and unplugged beauty..... My daughter quickly picked it up, ran to the kitchen and wiped if off. I then took the battery out, flipped the laptop over (opened) and let it sit for 36 hours before starting it back up... HAPPY to report that it is WORKING and my daughter does not have to buy me a new unibody... Glad that the top is relatively sealed!!!:D

    close call. when ever i read stuff like this i get this awful image in my head of the same thing happening to me.

    your daughter would have been pretty bummed, would you really have made her pay for it? what happened to unconditional love?! haha

    Best thing you can ever do it let em sit till they are dry vs turning em on to see if they still work while wet. Good call by you for sure! Glad to hear everything worked out. :)

    oooohhh man.... that is sooo ridiculous. atleast she has a good mind to not fry your logic board with misc. voltage running through it!!

    and if you really like tea... atleast your MBP smells like it :eek:

    haha ok i'll say something positive, if you ever need to get Apple to fix anything you say the liquid sensors were set off by you using the laptop in some 'heavy fog' ;)

    Woah, close call there.

    While we're on the subject, just how "sealed" is it?

    Once every 6 months or so I remove the keys from my Dell notebook (you just snap them loose) to clean out dust from under the keys. I expect that procedure to be a no-go on a hermetically sealed unibody MBP, but looking at my alu Apple keyboard, the keys don't extend down into the metal, it's just a thin flat top that appears to be attached to a pin... fluid or dust could easily find its way down under the keys and it would be impossible to get it out. Is that how the MBP keys are designed as well?
