I bought MacMini # MC270LL/A in Jan. 2011. I took it to the Apple Store and Apple guy said it had bad logicboard. Need replace new logic board. Worth to have repair or sell? I think about building it as new whole parts.
I look at ebay the logicboard cost around $400.

I agree. Not worth fixing for $400. You can get a new refurb for that.

Not worth it. Save up for a new one coming out soon.
