Is my laptop worth fixing?

Episode 1233 (1:52:12)

Sandra from Los Angeles, CA
Apple MacBook Pro

Sandra has a MacBook Pro and some liquid spilled on it. Is it beyond repair? Leo says the first thing to do is remove power. But even then, once that liquid gets in there, the keyboard is ruined and the liquid has likely seeped into it and shorted it out. The computer itself is likely dead. But that doesn't mean she's lost her data. If she has to replace the computer, she can pull out the hard drive and get the data off it.

Sandra will have to buy a new laptop. Leo advises going to the Apple Store to talk to a genius. If anyone can fix it, they could. And if Sandra bought Apple Care with her laptop, she could get it replaced. She can call Apple at 1-800-MyApple. At the very least, they'll be able to get the data off and put it on a new one.
