Logicboard died. What's better to do: sell or replace?
My Macbook's Logicboard recently died, because my wife plugged in external DVD-player with wrong power cable.
Official Apple Service told me that LogicBoard is damaged and needs to be replaced. Instead I asked another company to repair the board. Unfortunately, they didn't manage to repair and told me the replacement is necessary.
And now Official Service also doesn't replace the board for original price (800 EUR), because the board was modified during the reparation. And they say that replacement now costs about 1500 EUR.
So, I have a dilemma: replace it by myself (no such experience with Macbooks, but I'm software developer, so I know a bit in general) or sell the device/parts.
The questions are:
1) Are you interested in buying the device? And what could be it's approximate price if the rest parts are OK?
2) Would it be difficult for me to replace the Logic Board and does it have sense?
3) Any other recommendations?
Is this a good question?
