Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook
My Dad tipped a cup of coffee over this morning and a 'reasonable amount' went over the keyboard. Is his laptop doomed?!
I am not sure which model he has got but it is under a year old.
It might be :-( and usually stuff that lack isn't covered unless you pay extra for a high end warranty.
There are a few things you can do to try to save it though. As long as nothing shorted out (you didn't smell anything burning did you?), chances are a good cleaning could fix it. Are the keys sticking? Most laptops nowadays have a small try under the keyboard to keep stuff away from the vital electronics in case of situation such as yours.
1) Power down the laptop and remove the battery
2) Gently pop the keys around where the spill occurred, just pry them with your finger nail, they should snap right off with a little encouragement
3) Take a damp rag and blot up any remaining spills, or sticky spots, remember liquids and electronics dont mix so go easy on the water.
4) With a dry rag, blot up any remaining wet spots, can hurt to let it sit and air dry for a few minutes as well.
5) Pop all the keys back on and hopefully you'll be all set!

There is an increased probability of it getting damaged only if it would be on that time.othetwise you must immediately switch it off and allow it to dry completely
