Believe it or not there are some drinks that may not cause as much damage to the laptop than others. A spilt cup of coffee or juice with a sugar content can cause more long term damage than a glass of water for instance.

If you are lucky, it will just be a replacement keyboard that needs to be swapped. If you have been unlucky, the liquid will penetrate the motherboard connector. The whole keyboard may then cease to work as no input from it is recognised.
