You didn't have enough money for the car if you didn't have an emergency fund to cover stuff like your laptop. Sorry about your laptop though, that sucks.

You do realize that there are people who will actually do that. By the way enjoy a lot of your comments.

Oh, thanks. In almost all cases, when you first spill on the electronics, they become instantly and irreversibly damaged. Also, people shouldn't get tech support from FML comments!

I'd be more interested in hearing the untold story of how you "woke up" with enough money. Did you lose all your teeth and get a huge payout from the tooth fairy? Are you a mild-mannered office worker by day who robs banks in her sleep?! Are you a counterfeiter who uses photoreceptive paper that needed sunlight before the ink would display properly?!? Tell us!!

If your laptop was not on you could have removed batt and put it in a sealed container with Silica Gel which will absorb all moisture out. If it was on, well depends upon how conductive the liquid is and how far it penetrated inside. Either way luck is on your side or not. The car is a shame, still as they say good things come to those who wait.

What do you consider a "nice car" that the cost of a laptop gets in the way of buying? especially for a year. Most cars mid level and up are 20 grand minimum a laptop is a few hundred to maybe a 2000 for a really ridiculously nice one.

I was thinking the exact same thing. If you're about to spends tens of thousands of dollars, I don't see how a few hundred dollars can make or break you. If it took you 3 years to save (which makes it sound like you have quite a bit of cash) AND you're getting a loan, I just can't figure out how a laptop would ruin things. I'm sorry this happened to you, I'm just confused.

Maybe she needs a Mac for her occupation. If that's the case, you're looking at $900 minimum, and that's without a disc drive.I'm with the other commenters tho, I don't quite understand how this broke the car budget for a year. Sucks that it happened, I'm just confused

Your boyfriend was right to say that but sometimes the damage is done. Don't listen to the idiots on here who don't know that it could help to unplug and dry wet electronics.

Tbh you could probably still manage both unless the replacement laptop runs into the thousands. Would definitely recommend insuring it next time!

Electronics take ages to dry out. Give your laptop a couple of weeks before you declare it dead, assuming you can get by without it for that long.
