    I have a 2007 15" 2.4 ghz 4gb ram 320gb 7200 rpm 8600 256mb mbp. The logic board broke so i bought a new i7, my question is what to do with the old mbp. Would it be better to sell it by parts (like the ram, power cord and hdd) or should i sell it a whole broken unit on ebay?

    Any other thoughts would be nice?

    Also, how much a difference am i going to notice between my old comp and the new i7. im a graphic designer that uses adobe creative suite daily.

    I would try selling it in parts first as the screen alone can go for +200$. If no buyers, then sell it as broken unit.

    The CPU is faster but other specs are pretty same, depends on what apps you mainly run.

    you might be able to keep the charger for your new one.I'm not sure if the new ones are 85w like the old one. I'm assuming you don't have applecare, and you don't have the gpu issue. You might as well put it on ebay, You'll probably get more for it as a whole, and its a lot less work.
