Logic card issue

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I Have a late 2011 17 inch MacBook Pro that was running on OS X Mavericks and updated to beta test the OS X yosemite and it crashed after a few days loading the screen then going completely grey on the screen, I took it to an authorized technical issue store in caracas Venezuela and they told me that after running the mac protocols steps and MRI diagnostics the error comes from the logic card, it had preferred an SMC reset and PRAM, they tried restarting from an external hard driver, and with the OSX recovery on the internet. From internal systems they tried with Another hard drive and. Ram memory in good state and the flaw persists, the technician tells me that I must repair/replace said logic card. Considering that my mac is in pristine condition, with no scratch or damages, though out of warranty, can I take it  it to an apple store and have it fixed or have it changed for a new mac paying the difference?
what must i do, what are the recommendations of you guys. I live in caracas,and I have my mother fly up to florida, Miami in a few days. Can she take it to a Genius Bar and the such? I am kind of lost here.
any help from people from apple would be helpful.  In the store they told me that the report is filed in apple database and they know exactly what's going on. But the thing is I don't know what steps to take next.
A mac user in need.

You certainly can have your mother take the MBP to an Apple store genius bar in Florida.  Do make an appointment so that there will be no problem in that regard.  I would have greater faith in the Apple trained technicians who also have the diagnostic tools specifically devoted in troubleshooting Macs,  At the very least, you should then know exactly what the problems are with your MBP.
Apple has no trade in policy for Macs.
Ciao.
