    I've been offered a 2ghz white macbook from a friend but its broken, driveless, and power supply-less.

    The problem is it won't turn on, hes tried a few things including taking it apart and has decided the logic board is dead.

    My question is, is it worth buying for £50? Is there a similar problem to the older ibooks that can be solved by reflowing the graphics chip? (i know somewhere with a reflow station if this could well be the problem)

    Whats the verdict people?

    If you were buying it for parts for another MB, then the LCD would be worth that $50. However, you could probably find an older MacBook for $300-500 that would be worth it over the time, effort, and money needed to fix that one up.
