If I could give more detailed specs, I would. A relative's MBP seems to have died. They are reporting that the power light flashes as if the machine is in sleep mode but it will not wake up. They have tried unplugging/replugging, resetting SMU, resetting PRAM...nothing boots the machine back up. I believe it was purchased late in 2005, it is 17 inches and the clock speed might be just over 2Ghz. All signs are pointing to the logic board being fried and the estimated repair cost by my local shop is ~$870. Why bother at this point? Might as well get a new (used) MBP for that price. Even if they had purchased AppleCare, this would have been out of warranty at this point. Which is where this lovely community comes into the picture...They will need something comparable to this machine and, perhaps, something that's a bit more "with the times" than this 3+ year old model. Not the latest models (would like an ExpressCard slot for an eSATA adapter) but something that would be quick enough to run FCP with (perhaps) a few streams of simultaneous HD with no dropped frames. Not sure if any laptop can handle that application...I digress. All suggestions for which model/where to purchase are welcome, thanks!
