    Liquid damage sadly damaged the logic board of my white Macbook, purchased in 2006 but (pre-water damage) in excellent condition. The computer will not power on, and there is visible corrosion on the logic board. Could anyone give me advice on selling it for parts (all except for the hard drive, which I will hold on to)? Someone has expressed interest in purchasing the LCD, but I don't have experience taking computers apart. Would it be a bad decision for me, a complete amateur, to try take out the LCD, or would it be better to just sell the whole thing to someone in need of parts and more expert in computer assembly? Also, what is a fair price for a used Macbook with a damaged logic board, including a good battery and plug but minus the hard drive?
    Thanks for any suggestions!

    You should try to have it fixed and sell it as working, instead of giving up and selling it for pennies.

    It'll get $250 on ebay if you don't **** with it. the LCD is worthless, they can be had for $58 shipped new. I imagine used it's even more worthless.
