What is the service fee that Apple charges for replacing the motherboard on a 2007 Macbook Pro that's affected by the Nvidia logic board failure? The machine is out of warranty but the cost of hardware is covered. There's a service fee involved with fixing the computer. The phone lady wouldn't give me an estimate on the service fee. Not her policy or something...They want me to bring it in to the shop. Problem: warm boot results in the screen failing to power. Every single time without fail. Letting the machine sit cold with no power for an hour lets me use the Macbook Pro but I feel failure is imminent. So I've just left my Macbook Pro running 24/7 until I figure out what to do. So what would Apple charge for the service of replacing the motherboard since everything's soldered on?
