Hey, so my logic board needs to be replaced... i'm out of applecare, but have an extended warrantee with mastercard. Firstly I'd like to say that mastercard / Mondial Insurance require me to get a notarized statement saying that I do not have 3rd party insurance - I asked them why - they said that's our policy - I said why is it your policy, they said that's our policy. (I feel that it's to discourage people from filing claims) Anyhow, assuming that they honour their warrantee, apple is recommending not to repair, but to replace (apparently logic board is $1400?????) Which route should I go.. I've read a couple other threads Video card is more or less moot (I don't play video intensive games) Firewire is moot Most important is physical durability (toughness) and lack (or likely lack) of issues/problems. Also, I suspect that if I went unibody, I'd need to cough up the difference in cash - and perhaps buy applecare this time round (for either machine) -- not get jerked around by mastercard. Tanks.
