MacBook Pro volume keys malfunction

The volume keys (f11/f12)on my macbook pro stop working, seemingly at random. When this happens, I still see the bars display in the middle of the screen, but the volume doesn't change. Anyone else get this, or have a fix? [more inside]

Parallels Vs. VMware Fusion

I'm looking at purchasing a MacBook Pro for my job at a non-profit. I do web design and IT (as well as Accounting, which is what I'll need to keep running Windows XP for, and Outlook for the Exchange server). I'll install Bootcamp for XP, but much of the time, I will not want to reboot into XP. Would Parallels or VMware Fusion to a better job of meeting my needs? Does either one do a better job of running off the Bootcamp partition? [more inside]

If you're dumb and you know it, clap your hands.

I'm sure this has been covered before but I'm in a small panic, so forgive the indulgence. I just spilled a small (maybe 1/4 oz.) of beer on my MacBookPro. I caught it very quickly and sopped up the liquid with an absorbent towel. However, a small discolored spot has developed in the LCD and I'm wondering what the best way to abate the liquid might be.

Macbook Pro repair options

So the superdrive on my Macbook Pro is having the same problem as a lot of people on Apple's discussion website - it is spitting out most DVDs. I am outside the 90 day support period so I can't call them to tell me what to do but inside the warranty period, and an Apple Store is too far from me. What can I do about repairs?
