    So, my 17" macbook pro warranty expires on Christmas day and I brought in my computer this week because of crashes, which after testing at the apple store, is indeed linked to the logic board.
    My question is that since graphic card issues have been such a big issue for 2011 MBP models, are the replacement logic boards going to be any better? Has AMD or Apple modified the replacement boards or graphics card so they will be more reliable?
    Someone on the forum suggested re-soldering on the graphics card for a permanent fix. Is that what I should ask for when the new part comes into the Apple store to replace the old board?

    Apple won't do anything that the customer asks them to do. They'll only do what they think is right for the customer.

    The logic boards all have Radeongate.

    Option 1:
    Reball it (not worth it. It's a few generations behind already. Even the 650M in the mid-2012 rMBPs outperformed it by one hell of a lot).

    Option 2:
    Sell for parts and buy a new rMBP.
