You poured a glass of water, juice, or beer into your laptop. Don’t worry – it’s not done for yet!

If the machine is too far damaged to be worth repairing you can take it back at no cost. If you are local, visit our shop. If you live far away, you can always send your computer to us for a FREE estimate.
Spill damage is serious because it corrodes sensitive electronic components, but it’s not unfixable. At Apple you will hear quotes of $750 to $1250 citing that they must replace the entire board with an overpriced tier 3 or tier 4 repair. The reality is that they are simply not interested in getting their hands dirty fixing the parts you already have. It’s easier to gouge you replacing everything.
As soon as you get liquid in your machine you should stop using it! Turning it on will just make it worse as this allows electricity to flow through shorted wet components causing it to look like the board in the picture. Even when the damage is this extensive we can repair it, but it is best to minimize damage so we have a higher likelihood of fixing your board in a reasonable timeframe.
