Hi. My Macbook pro was in my backpack and I suspect some of the water from my water bottle spilled and made its way into the screen of my laptop. In reality I don’t know how this happened but there are some water spots on the screen.

Should I just wait for the water to evaporate? Is a screen replacement necessary?

I’d appreciate your advice.

It may evaporate. I’d leave it turned off for a while though. If there’s water inside the main compartment; running juice through the circuits is a gamble.

Water bottle INSIDE of the same pack that your computer is in?
Who would do that...?
