Title:

Fried logic board, what are some options for repair/replacement

Text:

My Macbook pro encountered liquid, and as a result the logic board is shot. I am on a very tight budget, and am looking for some options.

Apple wants to charge me 750 to have it sent off and fixed, which is out of my price range.

There are some logic board repair services on Ebay that charge around 250 to fix the board, and offer a refund if they are not successful.

I could sell my computer on Ebay and buy a replacement off craigslist, but im not sure how much I would get.

Let me know if you have had success with any of these things or have any other ideas
