Yesterday morning, my drink magically fell of my bedside table and went on the floor, next to where my mac was. My mac was both closed and turned off, however the charger was on & plugged in. The amount of water was the equivalent of a full glass, but that didn't directly spill onto the mac. It went on the floor near it and some obviously got in. A few hours later, I opened my mac to carry out my daily routine (mindlessly scrolling through Twitter) and found water on the keyboard & screen. I got a t-shirt and wiped everything up, then tried to turn it on. To my horror, nothing happened. I believe I woke up briefly before I found it like this and unplugged the charger so I thought "Oh, don't panic, it probably just ran out". So I plugged the charger in and the light didn't come on. Neither did the mac. I searched for ages trying to find solutions. Here are the ones I came across: - Put the mac in an airtight container full of rice and store the bag in a dry place (like a cupboard) for 48 hours. I don't have any airtight containers. - Dab a small bit of alcohol on a toothbrush, open up the mac and rub the corrosion with the toothbrush. I don't have any alcohol or screwdrivers. I was also told not to meddle with it as I could make it worse. That's pretty much all I found. I emailed our friend who's a technician and he said he "doesn't hold out much hope" for my computer and the best we can do is take it to the nearest mac repair store. If that doesn't work out, should I go to my nearest Apple store (which is about 45 minutes away)? I've heard horror stories about people being charged $700-900 for water repair damage there. I'm hoping to not spend too much; I currently have around £900 ($1500) which I have been saving up for a long time. So here are my questions: - What are the chances of my calamity being irreparable? - If it is repairable, how much should I expect to spend?
