    It depends on whether you need those ports. You can use the thunderbolt port instead of the HDMI, and the ethernet is only useful if you don't have wireless. It also depends on the price.

    It needs to be really cheap. I would worry more will break very soon.

    I wouldn't bother myself, sounds like dry joints or a similar problem on one of the circuits.

    Totally up to you though if you want to take a gamble.

    Would want it really cheap if I did get it.
