Is there a guide to part numbers, classes, and components?
Hi! I've been dealing with lots of A1181s lately, and I tend to go by the part numbers of the logic boards, because that is a fairly absolute and unmistakable way to reference a board, however it seems there is not a good way to cross-reference the board numbers with the early/mid/late year designations, or the classes of machines(Penryn
Does anyone know of a comprehensive and reliable index which cross-references all these confusing terms and parts? I've found a few, but they are generally incomplete and filled with errors, and I need something I can depend on when telling any given person that a board will/won't work in a machine. It's almost as if Apple is intentionally confusing the issue, and on the back-end they probably have a system that they aren't letting the rest of us see.
I haven't seen what you're looking for. But if the machine will boot there's no problem. Go under the Apple to "about this Mac", get the last three letters of the serial number and go here:http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-loo...
that gets you to the correct machine. Take that info and go here: http://www.welovemacs.com/parts.html
Select the machine and go to the parts blow up. The logic board part number will be listed. If you have the logic board part number, put it in the search box here: http://www.welovemacs.com/parts.html
