    A friend donated a Mid 2008 (Aluminum, 2.0ghz, 2gb, 160GB, no FW) Macbook that came out on the bad end of an encounter with a metal pipe. The screen was ripped off at the hinges. I got the bottom. The HD still booted when popped into another macbook. The battery is warped/bent. The Superdrive is bent. Ram appears fine. Logic board appears fine. Case is bent and touchpad is broken.

    So, any suggestions on what to do with the logic board? It appears undamaged, but... All of the connections to it were still secure.

    FWIW-That is a really tough case.

    You can either sell the logic board to a company like ifixit.com or on ebay or you can buy a new case from them or ebay or somewhere else of your choosing.
