Keyboards with drains
HP's latest PC lineup comes with laptops which can handle
beer and coffee being poured over them.
Each Probook b-series comes with a guttering system
underneath a laptop keyboard. It means users can spill a cup of coffee, or glass of
beer or whatever their spilling drink of choice is over the keyboard, and the
liquid will be channeled towards a drain hole and out from the bottom of the
laptop, saving it from damage.

seen. We saw it first demonstrated in 2007, but it is the first time it has
been used commercially. It will be in the shops from October 22 a starting price
