[rescue] Keyboards -- the great evil

I have a friend who is replacing his daughter's laptop mainboard for $150, he
paid about $400-450 two years ago for it. He thought about getting her a new
laptop instead, but this one really suited her needs and the repair price is
half the cost of a replacement laptop ($300-350).

At work we have a teacher whose headphone jack broke on her unibody MacBook
Pro - a repair that would necessitate an $850 mainboard replacement. Her
laptop will NOT be repaired, it will be deployed to someone that doesn't need
the headphone jack.
