I've got a MacBook Pro 4,1 currently running Leopard.

It has a few screen artifacts, dead media drive, dead battery (after 256 cycles), and a touchy magsafe power cord.

I can do the repairs, spending a few hundred dollars or I could simply buy a new MBP for $2K.


Is it worth doing the repairs and upgrading?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
