    i received a free 17 inch macbook pro..

    the logicboard is dead on it.. the apple repair centre wants to charge me roughly 1050 plus taxs to get a new logicboard.

    is there any places i can get it cheaper.. or do you think it is worth to repair as i got it for free?

    suggestions?

    not worth it, save a bit more and get a new macbook, much better.

    I personally would just buy a new MacBook with that price tag. The processor would be faster, it can hold more ram, has a bigger hard drive, it's newer, and the 9400M is actually about the same speed as the X1600. The only thing the 17" MBP has over the MacBook is it's bigger screen.

    I would just sell it for parts.
