    Why is the display $200 and the battery $250 to fix but the logic board $260 to fix ? Why would logic board that does alot more and harder to make be almost the same to fix than display $200 and the battery $250 ?

    Really why do people spend so much to fix computer when you can get new one?

    Is apple genius bar over pricing to fix there computer ?

    What computer is it for? The display is usually pretty cheap. If you do stuff yourself that is. Just have to figure it out.

    They're pricing whatever people will pay. They're not a non-profit company.

    The motherboard is the central piece where all the components of the computer connect to. I would guess it would be a major part. I build Windows computers and the mobo is the first item I look for usually.
