Looking for a replacement motherboard part

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement motherboard for a 2009 MacBook Pro. I don't remember the ghz I believe it's the lowest available 2.2? Mine was fried after a water incident.

Is this a good question?

Please give us the last three figures of your serial number so we can get you to the EXACT part.


My last 3 of the serial is 66H


Check that number again, I'm not getting the right machine.


The last three figures of my serial number is 089 for the iMac 5.1, Version 10.4.7, Processor 2Ghz


That is not the correct number either. Are you talking about a 2006 iMac or a 2009 MacBook Pro. Here's the poop on the 5.1 machine you listed:

Apple iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 17-Inch Specs

Identifiers: Late 2006 - MA590LL - iMac5,1 - A1208 - 2114
