My friend spilt a lot of tea on her 2008 aluminum MacBook. She turned it off and brought it into a university store that had AppleCare techs. Obviously because of what she did the repairs would not be under warranty. They told her that the logic board was corroded and that part of the MacBook was ruined (I have asked her to get the exact details). They said the cost of replacing and repairing everything would cost her more than a new one. She needs one for university so she got one on the spot. I am planning to get her to mail it to me to see if it can be fixed for a reasonable price if the labour is free. I am in military communications and the technicians at my unit repair consumer electronics when things are slow to practice their skills. I've got about 20 IT/comms techs there that work on everything from computers and servers to radios and radars. They are pretty skilled so I think they should easily be able to fix it. I am guessing a lot of that high price they quoted her to fix would have been long hours to clean out everything and remove and replace parts plus the all the testing time. I am wondering if you can order all the neccesary replacement parts. Where would be the best place to get them? Can I simply go to an AppleCare shop and buy replacement parts or is there a reputable site to order everything I should need off of? Appreciate any advice you can offer.
