    MacBook Pro 2012 Water Damage
    Good Morning, my grandmother spill a cup of water on my Mac when it was closed, some of the water made it through the keyboard and some water got through the internals. I dried the Mac, and let it sit for 12 hours. I turned it on and it booted perfectly. I ran Word and Chrome which worked perfectly. I then turned it off and turned it on and ran the Apple Test Hardware which reported back zero errors. I was pretty happy so I turned it off 3 more times and turned it on and it started up perfectly. The charger works perfectly also and all the keys work. Will my Mac Book survive or will it eventually die on me? Thank you for the help! I feel so lucky but can I really be that lucky?

    There's no way of accurately making that sort of prediction.

    Do you think it's just luck so far?

    It has nothing to do with luck. Either:

    - water got in (and that's a problem)
    - water didn't get in (and that's not a problem)
    - water got in (and it hasn't come in contact with anything vital yet)

    The only way to know for sure...is to take it apart...and examine it for water penetration. If there is water present...then it needs to be removed.

    Otherwise if no internal exam is made...there's no way of making any accurate predictions.
