    My 2007 MacBook logic board has died. Apple will fix it for $280+ tax.

    I am wondering if I should fix it or purchase a new laptop? I really like the MBA :)

    I feel like my MB is 4 years old and could have something else go wrong even after they fix it so I should by something new but not sold yet.

    Thoughts?

    Why not repair it and sell it, then use the funds generated to buy a new one?

    How much do you think I could get for it? 2007, 2GB RAM, 500GB HD, 2.XX Core Duo Processor...

    I think you could get ~$500 after repairs depending on the condition of course.

    So spend $300+ to sell for ~$500 means I could net less than $200. Not sure if I want to go through all the trouble trying to sell it for less than $200... but $200 is $200.
