What limit should I put on repairing 2015 MacBook (Retina 12-inch)?

I want to repair a Macbook 12 outside of Apple who’s latest repair bill is £580.80 which amounts to another new logic board and labour costs. They refuse to tell what is wrong with the laptop beyond the repair cost for a logic board replacement

£1995 repair bill in 3.5 years - 3 new logic boards, 1 new Keyboard

Apples own repair history is appalling and it may well be a case that whatever the repair a new logic board will be required in another n months from a new repair date.

2015 is the worst year for the MacBook Retina. Logicboard failure is WAY too common in these. I've seen 3 of those boards fail in the shop I work at in the last year.

My advice to you -- Stop paying for repairs. Cut your losses and buy a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or a PC. I would bet if you get this repaired AGAIN, it will most certainly fail.

Personally i would look for a new device! as mentioned above by another user - these models are renowned for issues!

A few notes:

A second hard refurb board can be found online from anywhere between $200-400+ , in contrast you can get a second hand Retina MacBook 2015 for around $500-600+ on auction.

After looking into the above two options another $800 seems a little steep, i would put that money towards a new device and sell the Macbook as spare and repairs working screen for $200+ on ebay or somewhere similar

I never spend more then 40-50% of the cost of an equivalent/better used device as a metric; it varies based on the device and some are easier then others. If the part costs 40-50% of what it would cost to fix it rather then replace it (or the cost is rounded up to match), you’re better off replacing the device and selling the old one for parts or keeping it around for spare parts as you need them.

This MB is easily totaled out, so you end up hitting that number much sooner. This would have been totaled out a long time ago with my metric, based on the first out of warranty repair.
