I'm holding out no hope..... I actually did this yesterday, and this is the first opportunity I've had to vent about it on my favorite forum. It's my personal laptop, I only bought it in Auguest and I've been bringing it to work, and yesterday I put a cup of coffee too near it. It was horrible. Picture a puddle underneath, and when you lift it & tilt it, coffee comes streaming out from under the keyboard. I've got it inverted, with the battery out, and a fan on it. I haven't tried to turn it back on yet, I'm waiting till tomorrow to try... From what I understand (though I haven't called yet) applecare doesn't cover owner stupidity.... sigh. Lesson learned. No liquids near the notebook.
