    without firsthand examination on both sides of the logic board, IO board, and trackpad card, and myriad connectors, you dont know that actually.

     

     

    Ive bought many used macbook pros to resell, 10 at a time in govt. auctions,.......they contained corrosion that were working ok.

     

    at WHAT point they WOULD fail is pure speculation.

     

     

    Your false premise is that corrosion = immediate failure / fault.  That is simply not the case

     

     

    the correct position is that corrosion is high premise and likelihood for 'immanent failure' of some variety.

    Just want to add to the original post here. I spilled a full glass of water directly onto my Macbook Air keyboard, it shut off imeadiatly. I placed the keyboard upside down on rice overnight and tried turning it on in the morning, nothing happend. The next day I tried plugging it in and still nothing. Today I took it completly apart besides the display and keyboard, let it sit out for about 3 hours and put it back together.    It is not working and appear to be completly fine! I could not be happier I thought my 6 month old $1000 logic board (cause thats really what we're paying for here) was ruined but nope! So there is hope!

    While the hope is in play make sure to keep regular backups of your Mac.

    What is really annoying is that other vendors have fixed this by either including damage in their warranties (DELL) or designing a draining keyboard (lenovo.)

     

    Check this out: http://blog.lenovo.com/design/avoiding-water-on-the-brain

     

    Seems likey Lenovo in particular is thinking different. . . . .

    It's called insurance, there's nothing stopping you from buying some for your Mac

     

    Or buy a Lenovo.

    For anyone who has had a spill or is asking questions should one happen:
    I spilled beer on my MacBook Air keyboard a few days ago. I immediately turned it off and left it upside down for maybe 24 hours without trying to turn it back on. I did towel/wipe it dry but that is all. After about 24 hours I tried to turn it back on and after pressing the on button many times it would occasionally show the low battery image on the screen. The orange light showing low battery lit up when I plugged my computer in but it wouldn't turn on. A couple days later-about 6 hours ago-I took a blow drier to the keyboard for less than a minute I'd say. I just tried to turn my computer on and after a few attempts it worked. Everything is great except my keys are a bit sticky and my battery says it isn't charging. However, it does stay on as long as I keep it plugged in. Best of luck to everyone.

    I do recommend taking the computer to a genius bar and getting insurance that includes accidental damage if that's an option for you. But I also had to add a positive spill story to the discussion.
