    Grape soda spill. Genius Bar says that the logic board is more than likely fried based on what they observed. However, the hard drive, display, memory, etc. should be okay (albeit sticky). Assuming this is the case, how much should I try to sell my damaged MacBook Pro for on eBay? I'm sure it's gotta be worth something.

    is it a 15 or a 13? Generally not working, I would say you should get between 350-500 for a 13-inch, 500-750 for a 15-inch. However keep in mind that repair centers all over the world do the exact same thing and we usually get to the good ones quick.

    On a different note, we could repair the machine for you. Here is our pricing flat rate:

    11&13-inch macbook, macbook pro or macbook air - $499.00 plus shipping
    15&17-inch Macbook Pro - $775.00 plus shipping

    Apple will charge you $787.75 for a 13-inch, $1280 for a 15 or 17
