    I accidentally left the cap of my water bottle open then threw it on my bed, the next minute a small puddle had surrounded my macbook air, so i took it immediately and shut it down. I waited for it to dry over night so then this morning i decided to try to turn it on but it wouldnt turn on at all! just should i keep waiting for it to dry then turn it on or is there no chance at all!
    Also i have not yet told my parents because they would kill me as they got me this macbook as a well-done-on-your-grades reward!

    MacBook Air, iOS 7.1.1

    You could try putting the laptop in dry rice to help draw out the moisture. If the laptop was on at the time, it is likely dead.
