I bought it in 2009, so it isn't a new one.  I immediatly turned the mac over and am currently drying it upsidedown next to a warm (not hot) fan.  what are my chances of survival and how long should I dry it out for?

    still a bad idea.  not good.  72 hours.  Dont turn it on again until you bring it somewhere to have it looked at.  Expect a hefty repair estimate.
