Swapping in new logic board appears to be the standard procedure Apple will do. Apple will not attempt to repair any faulty main logic board, as surface mounted boards are tricky to repair. When in doubt, they will just prescribe the new logic board option to their customer. The issue with this approach is, with the high-level integration on the logic board, it will mean getting a new CPU, GPU and the lot even if there is only one tiny fault in one component. This approach would mean additional cost for customers. Also noted that the current version of MBP shell are not tough at all, compared to the last generation. The thickness of the aluminium at various edges is simply too thin and can easily be dented to cause internal damage...maybe Apple should look into reinforcing the corner and edges to provide better protection.
