Sources for iMac G5 iSight Logic Board
Logic board died last week in the iMac. Apple price for board is $900+labor.
I am getting a new iMac on Thursday, but I would like to be able to fix the old one so the kids can use it.
Question: Are there reasonably-reliable firms who deal in the boards, or is it just better to pick up a used G5, and use mine for spare parts?
Any place here in Austin, TX, would be great!
Note: I did try to see if there were similiar posts here, but did not find any. If this is wrong forum, let me know

Ebay's your best bet. You could maybe disassemble your machine and sell the individual parts on eBay, you could make a fair chunk of cash that way.

No luck on Ebay yet, only the older G5, or the G5 ALS boards. I'll just keep on it over time ands maybe get lucky.
Chalk this up as another obscure model purchase, next to my 1985 Mitsubishi Starion.....

Yes, there are quality Mac logic board repair firms. However, shipping an iMac is difficult and expensive. If you don't have the original box for your machine, damage during shipment is very likely!
• Do you have your original shipping box?
• Where do you live? There may be a firm near you.
