I know the first thing to do and still turn your laptop -- you obviously take -- out of the water. -- your screen is still on some precedent. Now if you have a laptop you can take apart you should immediately remove the battery to get anything you want to do is turn it off. Looks like it take care that -- -- it. You want to make sure you unplug it anything that can sort of caused circus. To try to connect American short circuit the device. -- -- it will kill it in the hands and you wanna hang upside down so water drips out of the keyboard for. Right there is still water dripping out of the things I do not want to try to turn it back on because that could send it to its final resting place. We're gonna go ahead let it dry out for a couple of days and we will find out whether it survived or not. It's kind of Sam cross my fingers -- as little things went pretty -- so far. Right so we let the MacBook Air dry out. For two or three days and when we plug it in look at this comes and I wanted to say that it had survived our final water tests but unfortunately. Look what happens when -- unplug it. And will not come on and lessons plugged in and I'm sorry to say that although this thing put up a true ninja battle. The MacBook Air has failed the water test.
