Where to buy replacement logic board or is cross-grading possible?
I cooked my i7 2.8Ghz logic board. Spillage. Stupidity. Late night gaming. The local indie Mac shop estimated near $2000 for the repair. Too much for my pockets for a year and 1/2 old machine I paid a third more for. I want to repair it myself but I can't seem to locate the specific model/processor logic board replacement, on iFixit or elsewhere. Any suggestions of where to look? Or is it possible to cross-grade into an i5 board, given physical tolerances of the uni-body and internal peripheral compatibilities? Any suggestions or help would greatly appreciated. Thanks, folks.
Is this a good question?
