    Anyone ever had their logic board repaired? Mine is dead and I am considering a repair rather than buying a new one. Only $190 to fix vs. basically purchasing a new Mini. Found a place on e-bay in NY, NY that looks pretty legit. Only a 30 day warranty though on the the repair, so I am a bit hesitant, as I don't want to have the same problem too soon.

    okay the 2010 comes on sale at this link

    it lists at 469. it sells out fast but it comes with a years warranty and you can add apple care to go to 3 years.

    Your model is popular due to the internal dvd/cd player if you sold it as is (doa) on ebay you will get more then 200 for it. so 469 minus 220 or so is 249 maybe 225 maybe 275 for a model from apple with a 1year warranty. Paying 192 for repair plus shipping you will be more then 220 with no real warranty.

    here is an auction for a dead 2010 mini clock it see what he gets.

    Or just go ahead and use the repair guy he has good ratings. I know of no one on this site that used him.
