16 days out from Christmas I was replying to a customers enquiry at home on email with my fresh cup of coffee next to me, accidentally somehow (stupidity) I knocked my whole cup over the keyboard of my Macbook pro (17 inch, 2Gig version). Tears came to my eyes as I watched the screen turn black and this sad sound emit from deep within, I jumped up and tipped it upside down, as coffee rained out from my Mac visions of lost data and another 28 month of repayments still to be made flashed before my eyes or was it coffee?? Lucky I back up all my work and master image files to an external drive.
Now this is why you got to love owning a Mac…. took it to the dealer, the next day a tec calls and gives me a brief run down of what he found inside (not good and smelly). Two days later I get a call… dead right hand side USB and needs a new keyboard. To fix the USB would have cost over $1500 and the mac has another 3.. new keyboard $280 bucks. So my almost fatal error will cost $280 and I will have it back in just over 9 days from the day I dropped it in less than two weeks before Christmas… how good is that.
What have I learnt…. don’t drink coffee near your Laptop and that Mac’s are not coffee proof, just coffee resistant !
