    throw in a ziplock bag with rice for a day and cross your fingers. Wish I had a better answer for you. Good luck

    I'm pretty sure you made it worse. If it spilt on the table then only the bottom casing of the MBP will be wet so by turning it over you have effectively poured it onto the logic board...

    I agree it's a lot of rude people, but I actually think what they said was valid and I was thinking the same.

    Since cider is thick and sticky I would try some alcohol and clean it off your logic board if any is on there.

    Wow. Enjoy buying a new computer. Maybe it is the KwanMan's fault you spilled cider all over your notebook.

    Just what I was thinking...people were only offering advice. If he is going to be that rude then he won't get any sympathy when he boozes in front of his laptop and destroys it

    OP really needs to look up the definition of troll.

    Don't give up so quickly. My daughter spilled a coke over her iPod once. I cleaned it with alcohol, dried it with a hair dryer and it still didn't work. I let it air dry for 4 more days and it worked. It might take several days to dry out.

    I would let it dry for a few days, then try the alcohol for removing whatever residue you find. It might not be a bad idea to temporarily unplug the battery...Also, remember to ground yourself properly if you're going to be opening up your laptop. Allow to dry thoroughly before you even attempt to turn it on. Hopefully it will be ok.

    This won't help you at this point but for everyone else it might be something to consider. I purchased a Logitech Comfort Lapdesk from Amazon. Its very lightweight and works great on my desk and on my lap. It elevates your laptop while on the desk about 2 to 4 inches front to back. Spilling something onto my laptop would be harder while using this lapdesk. Typing is easier due to the angle too. Anyway just something to consider.

    No man, come on dude lets all be cool. I was just using an example - you have to admit that the comments you made at the time could not have helped me in any way - they were indeed, hindsight.

    I'm not looking for a problem here. I just hope next time a fellow mac user (could be you) needs some quick help then you'll be able to offer actual advice... If not, don't reply at all.

    Peace brother - have a good day.

    It's one thing to point out that a comment was unhelpful — it's quite another to start calling people 'haters' and 'losers'. Honestly, a public forum is no place for you if you take a comment like KwanMan's so personally that you feel compelled to respond like that, not to mention the passive-agressive editing of your post to 'Bye bye'. That's the online equivalent of a little tanty followed by a door-slam.

    You're right.. I completely over reacted during the heat of the moment and had myself a little tantrum. I acted like an idiot and now I look like quite the fool. I apologise to everyone here for any upset I have caused.

    KwanMan... I'm sorry if I caused you any distress or upset and I offer you my uptmost apologies. I hope one day I'll be in a postion to offer you advice in a time of need.

    Peace and love to all... and again my apologies for any upset or offence caused.

    sorry to hear of your accident. i would HIGHLY recommend a moshi clearguard keyboard protector to everyone. i does a super job keeping all kinds of junk off of the keyboard. probably would do a great job protecting from spills also.
    the price of $25 seems like alot for a molded piece of silicone, but it is really cheap insurance, and also keeps the keys looking new.
