    Hello. I set my macbook on the floor before going somewhere and then my sister's cat came and knocked her water bowl on the carpet. I moved the laptop as soon as I noticed (just as the water was going to touch the computer) and unplugged it but I don't know if it might have made contact already. I went to shower and figured it would dry and work when I came back. It didn't. I just went to bed, and five days later it still isn't working. My dad took it to the apple store and they said it would cost $750 to fix it. We're not paying that much and I am really upset over it. Do you have any idea what is broken or what to do? We're taking it to a repair shop but...:(

    So your macbook was on when the water came in contact?
