I have a 1st-gen MacBook, out-of-warranty. Over time the ports started failing and last week the machine stopped working altogether. I've also dropped it a couple times and there are 2 small cracks in the case. Took it to Apple Store and they quoted me $280 flat rate for repair. After they sent to the service center, I got a re-quote of $755 because of what they call "accidental damage"... this would include (I believe) logic board & case replacement. Questions: A) Machine is Core Duo 2.0GHz, 60GB, 1.25GB RAM (took out a 256 & put in a 1GB). If Apple repairs it it will come with a 90-day cover-everything warranty. I'd also fresh install Office 2008, iWork 08, and CS3. Worth it to repair and sell? B) Anyone had a logic board replaced by Tekserve in NYC and know how much they charge? I would have them change the logic board and not bother w/ the case at all. They require you bring the machine to get an estimate, but I don't want to get it back from Apple to take it to TekServe and then decide to take it back to Apple again. Thanks for any input.
