Use Keyboard Viewer to work around broken keys
Authored by: vasiliki on Apr 24, '09 11:27:00AM

They told my friend that because the damage involves a liquid spill it will cost more. Perhaps Apple assumes the responsibility of checking the laptop for further liquid damage when they quote that price (what if the key is dead because some other internal connection is messed up for example). Either way, while one ponders all this and compares prices, one can still have the function of the key via Keyboard Viewer. Let's move away from the particular cirumstance, I'm already going to get hell from my friend for mentioning the beer! Focus on the hint. What if you're on a desert island and one of your keys dies? Remember to use your buddy the Keyboard Viewer. It won't revolutionize your Mac experience but it'll keep you going. Thanks for the price quote though, hopefully if he stays quiet on how the key died he can get a cheaper replacement like you did. Shhhh...
