That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Liquid and electronics just don't mix xD
It's also not practical with the thing being at the other end of the room. Consoles should fare better with a coffee spill than a laptop. Happened twice, both times they never recovered. One kept randomly crashing, the other had sticky repeating keys. If you like the same letter a million times, I have a laptop for you :) I kept using it with an external keyboard until I got a new one.
My new laptop expels the air to the back, old one to the side where it kept my coffee warm (was too close obviously)
