My MacBook Pro 15” 2018 stopped working. The CPU model is:
2.6GHz 6‑core 8th‑generation Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.3GHz
I brought it to official Apple Service. They didn’t tell me what got broken, they just said in order to repair it I need to replace a logic board.
I brought my MacBook to another unofficial service. They found that the CPU got damaged. They changed the CPU and my MacBook Pro works now. And it is cheaper than the official Apple Service wanted to charge my for the new logic board. My Mac is still at the service shop, I’m gonna collect it from the service shop this week.
My question, is it safe to replace a CPU only? I heard that Macs can break again and a better option is to replace a logic board entirely. Is this true? Does anybody have anything to say about it?
