CHICAGO, March 29, 2013 – This column explores the unconventional stories that unfold when people spill various liquids onto or into their MacBooks, and how the Mac Repair Experts at LiquidSpill.com save them the trouble and expense of buying a brand new machine.  

Just this past week, a girl was about to embark on a rite of passage that every college student experiences. Spring Break. College Spring Break is a time when students frequently embark on road trip to Panama City Florida, South Padre Island Texas, or the beaches of Cancun in Mexico in search of lax moral environments and possible unscheduled cameos in extremely low budget films.

This young lady’s MacBook Pro was her life. Like a virtual BFF, she took it everywhere she went. But there are limits to everything. 

Just before Spring Break, she repurposed her MacBook Pro as a coaster for her coffee mug, allowing it to remain in that role as she waltzed across the hall into her friend’s room. This girl’s judgment was already questionable, except to the producers at MTV’s Spring Break who were anxiously awaiting her arrival. 

No guessing as to what happened next. Coffee spilled onto the right side of her keyboard completely shutting off her entire MacBook Pro. She tried to get paper towels to clean off the liquid but it was too late. The logic board was fried and she was left laptop-less until she returned from her Spring Break trip. 

Upon her return, she cruised down to an Apple Store so see how much her Mac repair would cost. The Apple technician quoted her a repair price at $750.00. As a typically broke college student, she didn’t have that kind of money to spend on repairing her machine despite having had enough money just days before for 24/7 beer wristbands and 5 a.m. forays to Taco Bell. 

Desperately seeking a Plan B, she went online and discovered LiquidSpill.com. Her friends thought she was crazy to trust a third party with her $1000 MacBook Pro, an observation she thought was ironic after having watched her friends become viral video celebs just days before. In the meantime, LiquidSpill.com immediately sent her the shipping label for an overnight FedEx pick up, and she shipped her Mac Book Pro directly to them.

One of LiquidSpill’s top technicians was available to personally help her via email and keep her updated on the status of her Mac. The company provided her with free FedEx shipping, fixed her logic board, replaced her battery with a brand new one, and replaced the charging outlet all for a flat rate price of $480. 

She was amazed at the price difference and quality of service that LiquidSpill.com provided compared to the way she was treated at the Apple Store. Within 10 days, LiquidSpill.com had completely fixed all of components on her Mac Book Pro while salvaging 100% of her data.   

LiquidSpill.com is a Mac repair service that specializes in liquid spills. The company provides free FedEx shipping, allowing the customer to send his or her MacBook to their expert Mac specialists where they repair it and send it right back. Their customer service is top of line, which means LiquidSpill.com was available to help this customer throughout the entire repair process.
