Well... Looks like this worked out good for everyone...

GlassOnion! The machine didn't even last a day after she sailed away from The Bahamas!
My daughter loved the machine and it was working great until it was murdered by an exploding bottle of shampoo which was loitering in the same backpack.
The Macbook is now all clean, shiny and full of body, but sadly completely inoperable.
She's now in Bermuda and is going to try to get it into a computer shop for their assessment, but I think it's a goner.
I blame the Bermuda Triangle.
Can I have a refund?
Just kidding. Do you (or anyone else) have any other poor innocent used Macbooks you wish to sell me and ultimately send to their death?
Pencil and paper for school work is looking better and better to me all the time.
As far as shipping the shampooed one back to Canada, that would be prohibitively costly at the moment. It will probably eventually return home in a suitcase, (the computer version of returning home in a box) but that won't be for months.
In the meantime, a Bermudian computer repair shop has somehow managed to get her older sea air corroded macbook working acceptably with some rework and the addition of a bluetooth keyboard. That hopefully, will limp along functionally for the remainder of the semester.
The Bermudian tech stated that he could likely repair the sudsy MB by "Frankensteining" it, but this would require more time than my daughter has in this port.
And yes However, she bought a protective case....today.
