    I bought a "for parts or repair only" Early 2013 MacBook Pro 15 Retina for $400.

    It's the base model, so nothing too fancy.

    Initially, I wasn't too interested until I saw that cosmetically, it looks like it just came out of the box.

    Opening up the bottom cover, I made sure that there isn't any signs of liquid damage.

    Walking into the Apple Store, I had it repaired for free under the "Repair Extension Program for Video Issues".

    You got a good deal. Not a steal but not bad at all. I remember buying one that had a dead battery (of course the guy didn't tell me this) but it was under recall and I got a new one.

    In addition to the logic board (refurbished), I also got a new screen and a new top case w/ battery.

    Not sure why those were replaced, but under Symptom, it just said "(multi)"
