MAC BOOK IS DAMN STRONG

COMPUTERS by KRISS on 22 september 2015

MAC BOOK IS DAMN STRONG Why should you never have a drink while working on a computer ? Because you run a big risk spilling liquid on your laptop and this is far worse than liquid on a keyboard !

This happened to me a few months ago.
I wasn't drinking but my daughter was and the glass was nearly empty.
Anyways, the turned around and spilled the glass.
The water went flushing through the bottom of our macbook pro like a wave.

At first, I thought it had barely touched the case and I was relieved.


I lifted up the computer to have a proper look and there was little water under the case.
I dried it with a piece of cloth and sighed in relief.

Not so fast, less than a minute later the computer switched itself off and on twice and then went black screen, no leds on the charger, just dead.

I opened the computer and there was water on the mother board.

I dried it with a little air pump without touching the mother board.
I then laid the computer opened on a bed of dry rice (basmati rice but you can take any rice you have at hand it will just absorb humidity) and left it for a couple of days.

When I put it back together, I really hoped this had done something but nothing happened and I just got the SSD out and left the computer in a cupboard to rest in peace.

The first weeks I would check it once a week and after 2 or 3 weeks I simply gave up.
I went on with my son's linux laptop for a few weeks and then received my old imac so I could work my photos again.

It is only 8 or 9 weeks later that I got bored during a lunch break and with absolutely no hope, I plugged the macsafe to the computer.
I immediately knew something was happening when the green and then orange bright led of the charge went on.
I pressed the button and the computer switched on as if it had never stopped working.
It is still working and has since fell on the floor once because of a misplaced zip (so Kate says).

So right now, I am tempted to say we were very lucky, thank you thank you thank you, and our Mac Book Pro is a survivor !
