    Recently i just dropped tea on my macbook pro screen and it trickled down to the middle partition ,immediatly i switced the system off,after two days when i started it it was working only charging was the issue,i took it apple authorised service centre they told me that charging port may be defective,after two days they informed me that logic board is not ok....
    Then i asked for some other option..they informed me that one person broke his mac book pro led , he want to buy new machine and if i want i can take his logic board,it will cost around 60% of new machine also they assured that it will cover the warrenty part,
    please help me out ,so confused....how to make out whether they are true in there approach,if i am not cheated...i just told them to change it..
    now please advice me how to cross check them...
    (please ignore my language error)

    You could ask to see the machine the new logic board it came from? That and your old logic board.

    Why not also take it for a second opinion?

    When you get the computer back and it works, won't that be proof enough? Even if they don't replace it and end up finding a workaround to fix the problem you're having, would that not quell your issue as well?

    By asking another Apple Service provider or an Apple store for diagnosis.

    Beer spill

    A friend of mine recently spilled almost a full bottle of Budweiser on my mac book pro. First thing i did was pick it up and it immediately shut off all i could thin to do was to put it in a tent position over a fan. immediately after i was looking up what to do on my iphone and it said to take the battery out. duh.... anyways i took it in and they told me a bit of beer got onto my logic board and it would be about 1200 to replace. i cant afford that and might as well get a new one at that price. Anyways i have my mbp back now and it is working completely fine. the keyboard stuck at first but not after I broke it in. My question is.... will it continue to work, and if so for how long? Thanks and please excuse any grammar errors.

    Unfortunately, that's impossible to predict. Once the circuit board becomes wet, it starts to corrode, so it's a question of where the corrosion will occur and how rapidly. It could last days (well, unlikely), weeks, months, or years (again, not too likely).
