is a Ps3 without bd-drive just garbage?
is a Ps3 without bd-drive just garbage? –
I have a second ps3 without bd-drive and i wonder what to do with it.
It has ylod and missing hdd to, but i think i can repair that. So should i just throw it away since i do not have the bd-drive?
Yep. If you don't have the logic board for the blu-ray, you can consider that PS3 junk
For now, its a streaming server or a demo machine. With the advances in being able to get into service mode, debug mode and more though, in the near future we may be able to reprogram these things with a new logic board key. Maybe.

Ok! Does yhe ps3 boot without the logic board??
It should, it just won't be able to run any PSN content or any games.
Yep. Without the bd-drive it puts the PS3 into protection mode where it won't run any applications. Like GeToChKn said above, you can still watch streaming content, play .mp3 files, etc, but you won't be able to actually run any software.
If you don't have a hdd in it I think the missing bluray drive will cause you problems when you put in a new hdd and go to format it - if it's a slim anyway. If it's a fat it should be okay because it won't need to reinstall the firmware.
