    Warranty is not going to cover your water damage....nor should it either.

    Because of water sensors / moisture detectors inside and they are good at spotting water damage even without those sensors.

    This is so true. My wife's optical drive went out due to a water spill (that we don't know about how that happened) and Apple Genius was able to determine that.

    Luckily, they still changed the optical drive without me shelling out any cash. That's what you called a real service!

    Because they have water sensors inside to address the fact that sometimes people 'forget' to tell them about the source of damage when trying to get something repaired under warranty.

    They have indicators known as LSI or Liquid Submersion Identifier all over the Mac.
    It tells Apple that your computer has been submerged into liquid and voids warranty.
    This happens to be in all Apple product.

    Your warranty is for manufacturer defects, not for accidents YOU caused. Your warranty is void.

    Lying and forgetting to tell them you spilled water on the laptop is fraud. They'll find out anyway.

    Cough the money up and take that as a life lesson.

    Just be honest to them. They provide the greatest service ever. Who knows, they might fix your computer for free.

    At least use proper grammar when committing fraud.

    Because an ethical adult owns up to the mistakes they make and doesn't try to defraud companies by asking them to pay for damage caused by the owner. But in the case those ethical people make honest mistakes in disclosing such damage, which I assume you are insinuating, Apple, as said here several times, installs little reminders called moisture sensors.

    By an adult, own up to your mistake, explain to Apple what happened and you never know, sometimes being honest pays rewards.

    If you are saying that a cup of water spilled on it, I can guarantee once the genius opens the computer to look at it not only will there be corrosion on the logic board but will also see as previous people have stated the LSI's will be tripped. If this is the case, then your looking at an out of warranty accidental damage repair which will go to their repair facility probably for a cost around $700-$800.

    Hopfully...that water wont be seen. :eek:
