    So...the logic board went bad on my ibook less than two months after the 1 year warranty went up.....I know...I know...I shoulda got applecare

    So-looks like I have the following choices...
    fixit through my apple shop at $600..

    hunt ebay for a logicboard and have it fixed...$$who knows

    or sell it clearly identifying it as having a bad logicboard...anyone have idea what it is worth in this condition?..51 RAM..60G HD with extreme is in very good shape...

    I'd personally look for a logic board on ebay first then get an ifixit guide to help you install it. If that doesn't go over well sell it identifying it is broken and buy a used powerbook off ebay :D

    extended protection

    Check Apple's website, it may be covered by their repair extension program. My logic board on my old ibook died in April, they replaced it for free (I was 3 months past warranty)
