    So a buddy of my spilt a beer on my laptop last night. To make it short and sweet everything works minus clicking on the track pad. Its a unibody pro 13''. swipes and gestures work, just cant click anything to save my life. anyone have a guide somewhere online they can point me towards to clean the damn thing or have any advice to offer me? and no, the dumbass friend can't buy me a new one, thats out of the question. Thanks in advance!

    Probably easier to keep your electronics from drunks.

    punch him in the face and make him pay $50 a month until he repays enough to buy yourself a new one.

    You break it, you buy it. Your friend had better come up with a way to pay you for it since he just bought himself your now fermented MacBook Pro.

    Wow.
    That absolutely sucks, man. I make people keep their drinks the hell away from my computers when they use them. A friend from college has a desktop case with fan grilles on the top. He would keep his drinks right on top of the tower. One day - you guessed it! His roommate knocked the bottle off and I heard *glug, glug, glug* as a full 12oz of Heineken emptied into that poor machine.
    Damage: Board, graphics card, hard drives - all soaked with Dutch pilsner goodness.
    It was my turn to buy beer that week, so I bought something good. The problem was those unusually shaped bottles...
