    Since Apple has started putting these water sensors on almost all of their devices now, I am pretty sure that the unibody MBPs have them too (on portions exposed to the external environment; not just on the logic board and internal chasis).

    I was wondering if anyone knew where they were located out of curiosity.

    Thanks!

    They're all internal - scattered throughout the frame, including the logic board area.

    Google it. I've seen pictures of the locations before.

    Makes sense that apple would scatter them. I suspect points of interest would be near the track pad,keyboard and also around the areas of the ports and vents - just my guessing.

    Great! Thanks for the info. I was worried because I had a bad experience with the iphone dock water sensor after applying the invisible shield. Thus, I wanted to see the locations of the MBPs water sensors before attempting to apply an IS.

    Thanks!

    you should be fine as long as you are careful around the holes in the frame, and especially near the keyboard. there are five or so stuck to the underside of the keyboard :)
