    Some spills have a sliver lining

    This user reported getting "a new, better computer for free" because of the spill that lead to this drying session. I wonder who footed the bill for the replacement--the retailer, the vendor's warrantee, or an insurance plan.

    Waiting to chase the mouse

    Nothing improves a laptop's performance more than cat hair! Heck, I doubt this laptop is going to last long enough for the hair to be a problem. This laptop is sitting so far over the edge, a sudden move by our sleepy feline could send the machine onto the floor.

    Bathroom laptop

    I saved the best for last. Yes, laptops are portable computers you can take almost anywhere, but come on! The bathroom is a veritable mine field of laptop dangers--water, hard floors, soap, slippery surfaces. Did I mention the water? This user may get lucky and never have an accident. But my cynical side knows better. This ThinkPad will likely end up in pieces on the ceramic tile or fried in the sink.
