    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.

    To speed up the drying process, you could sit out over a heat vent or put it inside a plastic bag with several packs of desiccant.

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