How can you tell if iMac is worth fixing or replacing?
I bought 2 iMacs at a yard sale. One, is just a shell and has no guts and is pretty much a paper weight. The other is the A1076 20 in version. I opened it up and it is missing the power supply, HD, and a couple other components. Other than that, it seems to be in ok shape visually.
How can I tell if it is worth getting the parts to get it running. Is there a way to test it somehow to see if the screen/works works or if the logic board is good? I looked it up online and all the parts would run me about $600 +/-. Would LOVE to fix it up, but don't want to spend the cash to rebuild it if it turns out be around the same price to buy a new one.
Thanks for any help in advance.
Thanks for your answers. Mactech plus: The logic board looks OK, I am pretty proficient in repair on Macs, replacing HDs, keyboards, etc, but DO NOT know anything regarding the logic board. I looked at it and it seems OK. No seepage or anything like that from anything.
Is there a way to test the circuits or to see if the display will work without buying all the stuff first?
Thanks again for your opinions.
Is this a good question?
