Simply by processor speed, your machine does appear to be one subject to the issue involving defective electrolytic capacitors on the logic board. When Apple first performed board exchanges under the now defunct repair extension authorization, a contract manufacturer responsible for refurbishing the boards typically replaced only the units which exhibited physical defects before returning these boards to the service parts stream.
We take an entirely different approach, replacing all of the capacitors which may eventually fail, not simply those that exhibit the issue.
Write to the electronic mail address in my Public Profile and I will reply with a short illustrated guide to determining if you are affected by the issue, and outlining the option to have your board refurbished for $ 189.00 if your are affected, and wish to do so.
I am suppose to take the computer to the Apple Store to confirm exactly what is wrong with the computer. If I decide to fix it, I will shoot you an e-mail. After some of the issues I have had with Apple products I am leaning towards a PC. They just seem to go after 4 or 5 years. I cannot afford to replace them that often.
