    It was top of the line when I bought it so still pretty proficient (15", 2.66GHz i7, 8gb, mostly used for fairly intensive Aperture processing) and I just very recently spent AUD$500 on replacing the CD drive with 500gb OWC SSD and data doubler.

    Fixing the logic board will be around AUD$1200 but a new Macbook Pro is AUD$3500+.

    The question is if I get it fixed will it break again in some way in six months and will I wish I'd just bought new?

    Not sure where i am
    i would say buy a new one because if it breaks in 6 months you would've spent 2,800 then risking it to break again. So ill recommend buy a new one but its up to u


    i just saw the title and i had a 13' MacBook Pro, from 2010. But mine would just shut off and apple said over 700+ in repairs so i got the retina in late 13
