So...the logic board went bad on my ibook less than two months after the 1 year warranty went up.....I know...I know...I shoulda got applecare

So-looks like I have the following choices...
fixit through my apple shop at $600..

hunt ebay for a logicboard and have it fixed...$$who knows

or sell it clearly identifying it as having a bad logicboard...anyone have idea what it is worth in this condition?..51 RAM..60G HD with extreme card...case is in very good shape...

I'd personally look for a logic board on ebay first then get an ifixit guide to help you install it. If that doesn't go over well sell it identifying it is broken and buy a used powerbook off ebay :D

Check Apple's website, it may be covered by their repair extension program. My logic board on my old ibook died in April, they replaced it for free (I was 3 months past warranty)
