    Many places to buy new ones. e-Bay is probably your best bet for used parts.

    And depending on the model laptop you have...many times the cost of a new logic board (+ install) can cost more than the computer is worth...or the logic board costs so much it does not make sense to do the repair. New logic boards can cost $500-$700.

    My first question would be are you still under warranty?

    My second question would be, how comfortable are you with pulling the logic board yourself? I was a littel intimidated at first, but if you can follow directions well and can stay organized, it can be done, and this was my first time also.

    I purchased a Macbook Pro from craigslist that said it needed a new logic board and was able to fix it. There is a certain procedure that can either save you a lot of money, or, leave you in the same position you are in right now which is needing a logic board. This will void any warranty you have, so do not try this if this is a new mac with a warranty.

    I also recently moved to Louisville, so PM me and I can give you the details and some good information to reference.

    tvogz: Sorry for the long response. There is no warranty on my Mac Book.

    I can pull the logic board and I'm confident with that. I send you a message by the way. Apologized for long response.

    Thanks

    Also note that there are some companies that do component level logic board repairs. That is, they'll actually take a dead board, find the problems and repair them and send it back to you. That may be a more cost-effective alternative to replacing it outright.

    Here's one example:

    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!

    Thanks for sharing some info. I will check on that.
    I really can't afford to pay a 500 dollars logic board that's why I'm looking for other options.

    Take note that Powerbook Medic and other component level repair services will not repair a logic board that has been damaged from a liquid spill. Be sure you read the terms of their repair services and warranty.
