I have an early 2008 15" MacBook Pro (A1260) that won't boot. I've taken it into the Apple Store, and they did some tests (PRAM and SMC reset?), and then told me that I had a faulty logic board. They told me that for a fixed price (approximately $300), I could send it off, and if anything else needed to be replaced, there would be no additional cost. This sounds like a pretty good deal, and I will probably go this route. But before I do, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about anything else that might be the likely cause of the problems, and if these things might be less expensive to fix.
Thanks for any suggestions or other info.
