Small update - lots of rubbing alcohol, q-tips, and a month of sitting doing nothing and now? I'm typing from it!

Yeah, it kind of sucks. On the plus side, a big-box office store here had the Eee 1000HE on sale for $197 Canadian, so she now has a tiny laptop as a replacement.

Sadly, the power board is fine. The scorch is actually on the logic board where the power board plugs in.

I'm marking this as the answer because it's a good answer for water damage. It turns out that the actual damage was done months ago when the laptop was dropped on its edge; the logic board was scorched where the power comes in.

Yeah, any repair on this one is far more than the value of the laptop. Frankly, I'm shocked it lasted this long. As far as spare parts go, I have a few options.

Yeah, that happened long ago actually. We left it a good week or so before touching it. It's strange, though. There really doesn't seem to be anything fried or corroded, which makes this completely unlike the last soaked laptop I saw. Also, this wasn't much water. Maybe a tbsp or two.
