    Liquid Submersion Indicators
    I heard that the new macbooks have LSI's. Do the old ones with the seperate trackpad and clicker have them?

    From what I found at apple's own forums, they have been included since october 2008.

    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!

    And the purpose is to disqualify machines with liquid spills from warranty work.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    And just in case anyone here has a "bright" idea, removing them is the same thing as admitting you submerged it, so it will still void the warranty.

    PS. Any reasonably experienced tech can detect liquid damage even without LSIs.

    This is truth. I have a question though. The article mentions that people that live in humid locations might have problems with warranties if the indicators are red when there have been no spills. Have there been any reported cases of this??? I live in Florida...Tampa/Orlando area, which is notorious for its humidity so this concerns me a little bit.

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    If you live in a humid climate and this were to occur, I am certain that the repairer would be in that same humid climate and be aware of this. Regardless, if there was no liquid damage, then you could insist that they inspected the logic board and components for liquid damage knowing that they wouldn't find any, and therefor you'd be covered under warranty.
