The logic board on my 2006 17" MBP has been replaced twice in it's seven year history, and has now died for the third time. I could have it replaced with a used board (new ones are no longer available) for $550 including labor. My optical drive is also dead but could be replaced for another $150. I prefer a 17" screen and the convenience and portability of a laptop that has an optical drive built in. I primarily work with PDF and Word docs but also use my laptop for Netflix, Pandora, etc. The closest thing Apple now offers is the 15" non-retina MBP, and after I "upgrade" to a non-glare screen we're talking around 2k. I'm also wondering if I should hold out another few weeks to see what comes of the June 10 WWDC event. If you were in similar circumstances how would you proceed?
