    Have a mid 2010 MacBook Pro with a failed Logic Board. What are my options? Id like to salvage any money I could to buy a new Pro obviously but I'm not sure. Does anyone have any solutions that they've used?

    Thanks

    Well, seems to me you have two choices: repair it, or replace it. You can look into services like iResQ.com if Apple's price is higher than you'd like, although if it's not a result of physical damage (like a liquid spill or a drop), then Apple's flat-rate mail-in should be the cheapest repair option. If you decide to replace it, you can likely sell it on eBay or Craigslist to recoup some of your costs. If you installed any upgrades (RAM, hard drive, etc) you may want to consider selling them separately to get the most money from it, although that's not always the case. Just make sure you securely erase the hard drive if you do sell it.
