Hi Mac community, Unfortunately, my mid-2009 MB Pro is officially dead (i.e. logic board is corroded) due to an unfortunate incident with a water bottle. The Apple Genius guy said I could fix it for ~$750 + tax, or just get a new computer, and he told me I could try to sell it for parts. My MB Pro is 13", bought it in May 2010, it's had a shell on it the whole time so the exterior is perfect, screen is perfect, but it won't start up because of the corrosion (still takes a charge though). It has a 2x2 GB RAM, 250 GB HD, SD, 2.4 Core Duo I think. I've never done this before. Can you please help me? My questions: 1) Is eBay the best bet for doing this? 2) Any particular pricing point? Any price range I can expect? (just want to know so I can figure out what I can afford to budget for a new computer) 3) What needs to be included or is traditionally included? Do I include the power adapter? 4) What happens to my data? Do I need to have the Apple store wipe my HD before sending out the computer for parts? 5) I have an incase hardshell on the computer. How the heck do I get that top cover off???? (Ok, you guys don't need to answer this but if you could, I would appreciate it as in 1.5 years, I have not been able to get the top shell off). Thank you all so much! I'm still getting over the shock that my very much beloved computer is pretty much dead. This is the first time this has ever happened to me. Ugh.
