Friend spilled beer on my 2012 MacBook Pro and now it won't power on. There's liquid damage on the logic board and corrosion on metal pads.
Apple store says they can fix it for $755 + tax.
Question: should I get a 2-yr old laptop fixed or should I put that money toward a new computer?
This computer still has ~400 days under warranty, so if I fix it and it has software issues, those should be cheap to fix. However, w/ the pace of tech development, maybe I should just go for newer.
What would you do? If you would get it fixed, would you do it through Apple? If you would get a new computer, which would you recommend (doesn't have to be another Apple product)?
Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
