I might need a new computer.

I came home and it was storming outside. My windows were wide open and the rain was all over my computer. I wiped off the keys the best I could. I am not sure if water will seep in and ruin it.

I'd let it dry off, and leave it sitting so open with the keys upside down over a towel.I dropped mine in a tub full of water, and did that worked for a few years after.

It seems to be working fine. I will keep a look out over the next few days.

Just don't use it until you are pretty sure it's completely dry.

It's entirely possible. The best way to deal with things like that is typically to shut the device off and leave it sit for a few days to dry out completely before powering it up again. I'm not sure I would follow the suggestion to use a dryer... most computer components are very sensitive to heat and that can often do more harm than good. Even if they meant a hair dryer, I'd be cautious, since that can put a lot of heat out into a pretty small area.
