On Second Thought, Maybe It Wasn’t Thirsty

Should you happen to, say, accidentally dump a healthy helping of Diet Pepsi upon your MacBook’s keyboard and find that, despite prompt flood-control measures, a column of keys has become unresponsive to user input, you may conclude that the time has come to open it up for cleaning.

If you’d rather not find your way into a $1500 laptop via a trial-and-error approach, then you’d do well to peruse iFixit‘s excellent, detailed, and exhaustively illustrated guide to stripping the computer down to its bones before picking up that jeweler’s screwdriver. Highly recommended.

  1. Now I understand why you were so nervous about drinking Pepsi near my computer this morning…

  2. I was attempting to be circumspect in the original posting, but it appears I may have overshot the mark. So, to clarify: neither the laptop, nor the Diet Pepsi, nor the responsibility for introducing the latter into the former, were mine.

    That is all I am authorized to divulge at this time.

  3. I can’t believe you would throw me under the bus like that, D-money. In the grand scheme of my own personal tragedies, this ranks pretty low. Let’s all be thankful that I haven’t accidentally ripped off any gas pumps lately (knock on wood).

  4. You’re so interesting! I don’t suppose I’ve truly read a single thing like that before.
    So great to find another person with some genuine thoughts
    on this subject matter. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up.
    This web site is one thing that is needed on the web, someone with a little originality!
