    I'm using a 13" 2008 Macbook running 10.5.8 and the sound died recently. The Mac store suggests replacing the logic board, but they want a good $450 for it.
    My question is: is there any way to acquire one for less and do the installation personally?
    I'd really appreciate a response, if I can't find one then I need to go out and acquire some USB speakers which would be really annoying...

    eBay or iFixit come to mind; you have to make sure you have an identical logic board and the repair is more involved than your typical hard drive swap. It can be done, though.

    #3 sells parts, tools, and provides free disassembly manuals online. logic boards are always expensive.
