Replace mid-2009 motherboard with mid-2010 motherboard
My mid-2009 17" MacBook Pro started smoking when I plugged in the adapter a few weeks ago. Apple says it's obsolete and won't repair. I'm windering if I can replace the motherboard and DC-in MagSafe Board with mid-2010 versions. I love the size and really would not like to lose it quite yet.
