Upgrading from Late 2010 to Early 2011
I currently have a macbookpro 15" bought in august 2010, and I want to know if it's possible to buy the 2011 logic board and it's top case to simply upgrade it.
Will the screen work with it ? I'm still thinking that I could save massive money this way.
well, I am all for doing something to save myself $
however i usually weigh in cost, time, effort. In my mind that's money. If i was considering such an undertaking my first thought would be how much i could sell my current macbook pro for ( they hold their value more so then most computers)..... and then how much it would cost to put that money toward going to the store and buying the model i wanted.... ( upgrading the memory, hard drive if needed ).....
I know my answer does not exactly fit the ifixit's mission of fixing/repairin
To answer the question, i doubt what your proposing would be plausible, givin how easy this type of upgrade has been in the past...... i won't say impossible since I haven't actually checked and i will leave that to someone who has tried it or looked into it..... with the cost of buying an entire top case of a 2011 model i just haven't thought of it.
