will screen and screen assembly from A1126 fix on A1175?

Hi, my LCD on my MacBookpro A1175 is broken. I know someone who has a full working display unit (lcd plus screen assembly) for a A1126. The connections look the same (I opened my unit). Do you know if it would work on my macine? Is there a way to find out for sure?

Is this a good question?

The model number A1176 corresponds to a battery, not a laptop. Could you take a run through ID your Mac for the model number? We can then give you the most accurate answer. Thanks!


I think you'll find that A1126 is indeed a model number for a 15" Macbook Pro


As Ben states, A1175 is indeed a Mac Pro battery, and in addition A1126 is an airport card for iBook G4's. ;o)


A1175 is the MacBookPro1,1 glossy screen model that was introduced in May 2006 and carried the order #s MA600LL and MA601LL.

A rare numbering duplication by Apple?


I think Kyle and Wayne must mean A1226 (MacBookPro3,1). I have never seen an A1126 MacBook Pro (which would put it earlier than the first release of the 15" A1150 (MacBookPro1,1).

Re: Ben, A1176 is also the model number for Macmini1,1 and Macmini2,1 (early 2006–mid 2007 models).
