Hi, My wife spilled a cup of water on her 1st Gen Black Macbook. After doing all we could to dry it out, including removing the battery and keeping it upside down and open for a few days it will not start up. The battery is OK. It still registers 1 green dot and the charger seems OK. Anyway when I try to start it with only the battery, nothing happens. When I plugged in the charger, a small wisp of smoke emanated from the keyboard with a distinct burning smell. Needless to say I unplugged it right away and gave the macbook up for dead. I emailed our Mac IT guy at work and he suggested I take it to an Apple Store and see if they'll fix it for a flat rate of $369. I was wondering if anyone has has a similar unfortunate experience and had Apple fix it for a somewhat low flat rate? BTW, our Macbook still has Applecare, for all that's worth. Ironically a couple of months ago I sent the macbook in to Apple to have a creak in the hinge and palm rest cracks repaired. Apple rejected it claiming there was water damage on the LCD bezel. That was BS, but either way Apple would not fix the macbook unless I paid $799 for a new LCD! My IT guy was aware of my issue with Apple so I don't know why he thinks Apple would now get the macbook up and running for under $400. I have a feeling that Apple will want to definitely change the LCD and who knows what else. That will definitely cost more than $369 or $799 for that matter. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
