Currently I have a 2.66 ghz late 2009 macbook pro. It is to the point where I start to see freezing when viewing anything HD video etc. My questions are as follows: Would the internet run faster with the upgraded logic board and graphics? Or is a 2009 just as capable as a newer laptop? If I decided to fund a new computer with my current one how much would I be able to get for it? It currently has a brand new screen, battery with 77 cycles on it, and a new logic board. These were all under warranty and I just got the computer back. There are also no scratches and looks new because I only used it as a desktop (it never let the house except to go to the apple store for repair). I do not do gaming, but I sometimes will use my computer to watch shows or movies. This does not exactly justify getting another one if I will never fully used any of the hardware. What do you think?
