    While I'm not sure myself - I'd check around ports (headphone jacks, near the keyboard, power plugs) they tend to be located around openings into the cavity.

    If you got one wet, and are trying to hide it - I'd quit now while you're ahead - water damage is OBVIOUS to just about every electronic technician, even if you dry it out. The level of effort required to mask water exposure isn't worth the cost of a replacement.

    That said, good luck!

    i disagree, based on personal experience.

    depends on on where it spilled , and how much damage there was. my gf spilled a few drops of cranberry juice on her keyboard and it shorted out the keyboard and the power switch. after I opened it, cleaned it, let it dry the power button still wouldn't work (but an internal battery reset jumpstart worked fine). I sent it in to apple and they replaced the keyboard and power modules.

    Yeah...I'm gonna make them check those sensors before I buy AppleCare. You think if a Genius takes it apart and puts it back together to check everything will be okay? I don't want them messing anything up.
