The logic board is your Mac’s motherboard. It houses all the main components of the machine and their interconnects. Symptoms of a logic board fault can be wide ranging depending on what component(s) have issues, and the seriousness can vary from something as minor as a dead USB port, to a totally non-functional machine.
As time goes on newer applications and Operating Systems have greater system requirements. As such a machine that is a few years old, running modern software, will feel much slower than it did when new. Granted a percentage of this will be from the aging processor, but it is often due to the amount of RAM (Random Access Memory) which is installed in your computer.
Hard Drive (‘Storage’)
Other than RAM the main cause of slow downs is the internal hard drive. Hard drives degrade in performance over time, and can also get filled up to the point where it hinders normal operation. In the office analogy above, you can imagine what happens if there isn’t enough space in the filing cabinet to hold all the things you need to swap out from your Mac – you might need to make two or more trips juggling your inadequate free space.
