Even Spill-Proof Keyboards Can Leak
OK, fine. Lenovo calls them "spill-resistant" keyboards on their Thinkpads. I used to think of them as "spill-proof" until I actually spilled some water on one. I quickly learned that although those drain holes in the bottom of the computer look like they should drain all the water, they can only handle so much volume. At some point, the keyboard can leak (or, water can still enter through other means). I removed the keyboard and I'm drying things out on this Thinkpad. Hopefully everything will be back to new when I fire it back up after I let things dry out.
