    Liquid splashed on my macbook pro keyboard!
    A few hours ago, I splashed a little bit of liquid on my keyboard and started freaking out. I wiped it right away and everything has been fine since. However, now I am worried that the damage will show up later and I do not know what to do. Is there any way rather than opening up the laptop to see whether or not damage occurred?

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Turn it off for a few days and place it open upside down. Make sure it is dry. If it is fine now it will probably be fine later if you let it dry.

    Thank you! My only issue now is that 4-5 of the keys are sticking when I type and it's driving me crazy! I am scared to take them off and clean inside, so I was wondering if anyone knows if I take it into the apple store, can they clean it for me? And if yes, what is the average price?

    You can do it yourself really easily and it is not that hard. Pull on the top left and with some pressure the key should pop off. You can use a q tip and a little rubber alchol and clean the area and that should take car of it. Then you just pop the key back on.

    Your welcome. These are the best machines when they are working. I am happy that the water didn't damage your computer at all.
