    Replace logic board
    Hi I need to replace my logic board on my late 2008 mac book. The apple store says it will cost 500 bucks. Any suggestions on a cheaper solution? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    There is no cheaper solution for a machine that old. At best your MacBook might be worth $400 if everything was in pristine condition. Even if you were to pay for a refurbished logic board from another repairer, it would still probably cost you more than the machine is worth.

    Sell the machine for parts on eBay or Craig's list and use the money toward buying another.
