I recently found out that the logic board in my macbook pro is broken from a object falling on my keyboard. I know hte warranty won't cover it and the estimates i have been getting for a replacement logic board are all over $1000. Local Mac techs told me that the logic board has no physical damage and it might be able to be repaired but very few could do it. Couldn't of happened at a worse time as I started school this week, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Logic board repairs are very tricky require soldering and most of the time break again later.........I actually need a macbook pro for parts so if you ever want to sell it let me know. Any other questions feel free to ask. KYle

Not sure how you feel about eBay, but I have seen them go for about $500 on there. If you aren't adverse to performing the repair yourself, you could save a lot of money.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

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!

you were quoted way too high. I just had a logic board put into a 2.4 Ghz MacBook Pro. I took it to the Apple Store in the FL mall. The part was $210 and labor was $100. With tax it only came to $330.00 Demand a solid quote from someone who actually looks it up in their system. BTW, mine was OUT of warranty so I paid out of pocket. No discounts were given.

hndcvcboi, Any chance of mentioning where the "Apple Store in the FL mall" is or if they have a web site? I need a logic board for a 17" MacBook Pro and if they can sell it for around the price you mentioned, I'll definitely buy one from them. Thanks!

mine is broken as well, what do you guys think of making a tower out of it and substituting something else for the logic board? might be crazy but sounds interesting at least, let me know if this is plausible
