Optimus Maximus Keyboard Gets Coffee Bath, Apparently Survives

Illustration for article titled Optimus Maximus Keyboard Gets Coffee Bath, Apparently Survives

It was only a matter of time. This image popped up on an Optimus Live Journal group, showing the sad results of a clumsy morning with a steaming mug and a $1,600 Optimus Maximus keyboard, which is one place we didn't take our review-yet. Not much info on what happened or whether this was a planned test, but the poster says it survived the "first recorded coffee spill thanks to the construction of the upper tray." Phew.

woooowwww.... but would it withstand Mountain Dew?

that's the true test, supercharged caffine.

and there's nothing like tilting your keyboard upside down and watching a steady stream of liquid coming out of it, and this usually happens a few hours before a deadline.
