So my early 2008 macbook pro just fell victim to the faulty nvidia 8600gt card. Sucks because before this happened, it ran perfectly fine and did everything I needed. So I guess I have 2 options... The only thing I can do to keep it alive is the flat-rate $310 refurbishment through Apple. Price-wise that is optimal, but they put the same video card in, and then i'll gamble with how long that one will last. I suppose I got lucky with mine lasting 4.5 years, but who knows with the next one. Or I could buy new. This much I'm undecided on, don't really need a laptop as much anymore so I could go with a desktop. My decision there is pretty much iMac or build-my-own PC. What do you guys think is a better option? Pay a small amount to keep my current MBP alive, or go new?
