    I don't understand how so many people spill drinks on their laptops. I honestly don't think I've spilled any drink anywhere since I had just graduated from sippy cups.

    I find it amusing that everyone has jumped on this guy's cousin, pretending an accidental spill has anything to do with competence or carefulness. Even the most experienced and cautious people make mistakes every so often, and this is just one example of such a mistake. Anyone who pretends spilling something on his computer is completely impossible because of some level of skill is simply deluding himself.

    He is not at all technical savvy, he mechanics savvy.

    Applecare fixed it surprisingly. I don't know whether they knew it had happened or if he cleaned it before sending it off.

    I don't get how you even spill a drink ON your computer? I mean I can see knocking it over on your desk, but even then common sense would imply you keep it far enough away so that the liquid will just run under the bottom of the computer.

    Still, go figure.

    That's precisely why I have my computers up a centimeter or so up off my desk with little rubber feet things so that if anything spills, it goes under the computer.

    What if he has a pointed stick?

    I just keep my Macbook on my iCurve stand when I'm at my desk. Not that I've ever spilt anything on my desk yet, but better safe than sorry!
