Water spill burned logic board. Any way to get it fixed cheaper?
I spilled a small amount of water onto my macbook air last sunday. I did what I was supposed to do (take the power cord off, dry it, blow try it and put rice around it), but when I turned it on the screen was extremely dark. I can still see a little bit of what was going on on my screen but it was impossible for me to continue using it. I connected my laptop to an external display and everything else works perfectly fine. So I thought it was just a screen problem.
So I took it to an authorized apple repair place to get it checked. And now they told me it will cost me $1000 to fix it ($849 for logic board replacement and $100 something for labor). Is there any way I can get it fixed cheaper? What can't they just fix part of the logic board instead of replacing it?
Is this a good question?
