    I spilled beer on my laptop

    Then I quickly tipped it on it's side using my lightening like reflexes. I grabbed a can of compressed air and took the laptop outside to blow the beer off. All seems well. I'm posting this from said laptop. It was a Yuengling Traditional Lager if anyone is curious.

    Thought for a minute there that I'd have to run out to buy a new laptop

    Forget the computer, save the beer... My heart is broken..

    Re: I spilled beer on my laptop

    my brother wasted beer over his month old laptop, problem is he'd already drunk it so I refused to touch it and so did everyone else he tried taking it to. He left it to dry out but of course it wouldn't turn on again, it was terminally damaged anyway from the added acids in the chunder.

    beer without puke should be okay as long as it wasn't too yeasty and if you got it quick enough it shouldn't have gone further than the hopefully spill-proof keyboard tray. you may find the keys get stickier in which case, a replacement keyboard may be necessary since it's nigh on impossible to removed keys to clean a laptop keyboard without breaking the plastic hinge fixings under them.

    You should soon find tiny flies hovering around. Flies like the odour of beer and wine. So, in summary, your laptop may become a breeder for fruit flies.
