Right to Repair

Hi!  Sorry to hear about the laptop.  Yes, I'd definitely break it down as far as possible in order to get the coffee out of it.  You mentioned that it is still wet...the main thing is to absolutely not turn it on until it's 100% dry.  If the board hasn't been fried so far, it will get fried if the laptop is powered on while wet.  Even if it takes a couple days, let it dry out 100%.  There is a possibility, however small, that it will power on when it's dried out, and I'd say that will be helped out further if you are able to get in there and wipe out coffee in the meantime.  But no power -- you'll fry it.  Good luck!
