I have the Macbook unibody and can't stand the screen - does anyone know if I can just buy the 13" MacBook Pro top panel and replace the screen? (i.e. same dimensions, connector etc??)
Apparently not. I called Apple and they will not replace the screen even if you pay for it. I also called several top Mac shops and the cost was prohibitive. In the end I sold my 2 month old 2.4/4 UMB for $975. In the end it cost me $300 to upgrade to a 2.26/4 MBP. I lost .14 GHz but gained firewire, a much nice screen, an SD card slot and new batter technology, so the cost was worth it to me.

Hi, need some advise from you experts.
I have the older MacBook Unibody 13" and waiting for the arrival of this MacBook Pro 13".
1) Can I just interchange my 500GB hard-drive in the old machine to this new machine ? Will both still function ?
You will have to do an archive and install. I lost the sound on my 13" MBP when I used the old OS in the new Mac.
2) Both Mac OS is the same 10.5.7 ?
No exactly, which is why step one above is necessary.
3) When will iFixIt sell 4GB RAM for this new Unibody ? Apple upgrade is really expensive.
