Submission + - MacBookAir{ :brick = '2 drops water'} 2 2

curmudgeon99 writes: MacBook Air, 11", 3 weeks old. Two drops coffee on the keyboard => catastrophic system failure and total loss including entire "hard" drive, which consists of flash chips naked on the motherboard, which is located at the bottom of an aluminum bathtub where liquid will naturally collect.

2 drops => MacBook Air brick.

The motherboard with the entire hard drive sits naked at the bottom of the aluminum bathtub that is the case. They cannot put a proper shield between the keyboard and the innards because they need it open for cooling, another consequence of the design choice of an aluminum bucket. The MacBook Air is a beautifully designed curiosity that is not fit for real-world use, in my opinion.
