    My 2011 13 inch macbook pro has water damage the logic board looks pretty nasty. I tried keeping it in a bag of rice for two days but it's still dead, it won't turn on...

    I already bought another one as it's essential for me to have this laptop, but what should i do with the one that has water damage?

    Can I sell it, for how much? Should I part it out?

    Sell it on eBay. I sold a non-working XBox 360 and was surprised with the $. Start it at $10 for 7 days. My guess, it'll bring $300-$400.

    I agree just throw it up there for repair or parts, and it should sell for a few hundred.

    New logic boards are expensive. 500+ Probably more like 700+

    yeah same problem here...

    my 15 macbook pro was on the floor when our washer decided to flood the entire back room. It fried the logic board and I am left with a beautiful albeit dead computer. I too considered buying a new one but then I found this company that specializes in spill damage and specifically logic board issues, going to give them a try. http://www.expertmacrepair.com/ They are offering to repair the logic board and any other components damaged for a flat $680 including shipping...so lets see how it goes.
