I have a Mac Book Pro which isn't that old. It runs great, however the other day I got liquid damage to system. It still runs, but there is quite a bit of extensive damage.

Is it worth repairing the system? The main logic board has damage, the keyboard, bottom housing and optical drive.

How difficult is it to repair those components and is it worth it?

Which model of MacBook Pro is it? What level of skill do you have in repairing notebooks?

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!

I'm not 100% experienced but know my way around laptops and computers. I know that swapping out the main logic board may be the biggest area of concern (that's if I can find one that matches my model), it's a hit or miss from the research I've been doing.
Currently, I have a MacBook Pro 4,1
