In the past month, two of our customers have dumped wine into their laptops by accident. The casualties have been a Toshiba Satallite Pro and a Compaq (appears to be dead). It happens.
I spilled half a can of coke over my Sinclair ZX Spectrum during a late night coding session back in the late 1980s, (well, typing in BASIC programs from "Sinclair Programs" magazine! ) I ended up pulling the whole thing to bits at 2:00 AM, cleaning it carefully and putting it back together.
Both cases were the same type of incident; using the laptop while having a glass of wine (in a wine glass). By nature wine glasses are unstable - extremely prone to being knocked over - even more so if a laptop is within the spill zone.
You don't feel right. You expect the etiquette stormtroopers to come in through the door to ridicule you. If you love your laptop, you'll use a tumbler. There are keyboard covers, but I have found them to be annoying to use, but they might work for you.
If for some reason, you have spilled wine/beer/water/pop into your laptop:
Now, if you spilled pop, wine or coffee into the laptop, you should probably give us a call, as some of these actually corrosive - they will cause damage to the laptop's electronics over time.
We can strip down the laptop properly and repair it for you.
