MacBook Pro 13.3″ (Late 2013) Wine Spill – Worth Fixing?
Customer called us at 10:00pm on Thursday night. He let us know his girlfriend was working on an important college paper when she accidentally spilled a cup of wine all over the keyboard of his MacBook Pro Retina. Luckily they turned off the MacBook right away and called us.
We headed back to the office to see if we can help them find a solution to bring their MacBook back to life. After inspecting the logic board under a microscope, it was clear that the wine had seeped through the keyboard and made it to the logic board.
Not only did they need a full Liquid Damage Repair, but they also needed a complete top case. The liquid damage repair is $300.00 and the new top case is $350.00 + Tax.
Now, they found themselves in a very tough situation. Do they buy a new MacBook or spend close $700.00 to repair this one?
We removed the hard drive from the MacBook, installed it in one of our machines and helped them retrieve the file they were working on. They will spend the night thinking about what makes most sense to them…. repair or replace?
If you find yourself in this situation, PLEASE make sure you turn off the MacBook right away and have a Apple liquid damage specialist look at it before you attempt to power it in.
