Hi everybody, I own a 2009 MacBook like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...pyl-DqAject0NuldToR12BoCupPw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds. It has been running pretty well despite its age. It has a new solid state hard drive in it. However, the screen display has dimmed out. I have been to a couple repair shops & both say the problem is either the display or the motherboard. One repair shop suggested I buy an identical older MacBook and install my hard drive in the replacement machine. It would cost me $125 for the repair & probably $150 to $200 for the replacement machine. However, the replacement machine may simply bring a new set of wear & tear problems. I had hoped to replace the machine next year. (My budget is very tight until the end of 2017.) I usually try to buy quality goods that will have a long life to them and repair them as opposed to replacing them. However, I am wondering what the best way to go is here. What do people recommend? Maybe even get a cheap Google machine?
