    Unhappy Water damage on Macbook, charger light still works.
    Considering that the charger light still works, what would be most recommendable... send it in to get fixed, get a refurbished one and swap hard drives, or sell the parts?

    How old is the MacBook and how extensive is the damage? If the logic board has to be replaced and the machine is several years old, then it's certainly not worth the cost. If you can salvage the hard drive, at least your data won't be lost.

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Time will tell as liquids often prove fatal. Make a decision when you know what you are up for. In the meantime:-
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
