Does anyone have the email address of someone at apple customer relations?
I'd be shocked if Apple even stocked logic boards for a machine of that vintage. You are correct that there was a warranty extension up until 2008. Here's the problem: it's nearly 2012. Technology marches on at a pretty fast pace, so while that machine may have been fully supported with parts supplies in 2008, 8 or 9 newer revisions have been released that Apple now needs to support. They're not going warehouse parts for a machine that far out of date. Much like you can't get a new bumper for an '82 Chevette from GM.

You're not going to find any insider contacts on this forum. We're not affiliated with Apple in any shape or form.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
