Only if it got under the seals and messed up the actual LCD screen; wouldn't do anything in regards to "touches" since the mineral oil is nonconductive.

I dont use the touchscree anyways, and it'll be covered by insurance if I mess it up, as an act of "stupidity," as it says IN THE POLICY.

Yea... I highly doubt that, that's almost like saying, "Hey, here, buy this $250 tablet, take it outside and take a sledge hammer to it, we will just GIVE you another one FREE!!!"

I honestly think you're full of **** when you are saying they will cover damage caused on PURPOSE.

I'd link you the AUP, but it has my personal info on it >_>

If they replaced a PURPOSELY run-over computer, a computer with a BULLET HOLE in the HDD, then they'd fix mine -_-

How well does blue toothwork through oil? ..

Cause you can now have a fully self contained unit, and could even epoxy a usb hub to the side to use instead of a optical drive.

Oil shouldn't hinder Bluetooth signals much if at all. It's just electromagnetic waves making vibrations, right?
