    It has liquid damage, but it's only $200. I was thinking I could buy it and maybe fix it up. If I can't, I'll just sell it. It's a 2009 MacBook Pro, if that helps any. I'm only 15, so I'm not raking in big bucks. I probably won't even get a MacBook until college, so this could be the start of my journey into Mac world. It's practically calling out to me. I think it's a steal, but is it worth the hassle? The woman selling it says that it would cost about $220 to fix it. I figured I could take it apart and clean it out. That seems to work most of the time.

    I stopped reading right there. There's no way I would touch it at any price, but that's just me. Some may like to tinker, so it might be worth it to you.

    Likely beyond repair
    And $220 estimate is too low
    Only buy for parts if far less than what you feel confident reselling

    If the logic board is bad, that costs at least $500.
