    I have an Original 15" MBP that was diagnosed with having a bad logic board. I have seen some repair services that will repair the logic board for around $300.

    Think it would be worth it? Or should I sell it as is on ebay? How much could I get? The laptop otherwise is in excellent condition.

    Thanks in advance.

    Did they say what the problem is exactly? That price seems awfully low. I can't imagine, if you had a bad logic board, that a repair service wouldn't just replace it since it's the simplest solution - but replacements run around $500. $300 sounds like a quote just for the labor and if that's it, and you can get them to spill what's wrong with your MBP, it may just be a quick and easy fix you could do at home.

    No.... it has been diagnosed by an authorized repair center as having a bad logic board. Everything else is good.
