Yeah, good luck with that. They are in business to make money. If they were to pay out warranty claims for every machine well past its prime, they wouldn't be in business very long.

7-8 years is a good, long run for any computer, let alone an iMac, which uses laptop components and has limited cooling capacity. I'd simply repurpose that particular box as a doorstop - even in running condition, that's about all it's good for.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
