Can I swap the entire display assemblies?
I have both laptops, both are A1286, one states it clearly so on the bottom, the other the number rubbed off, but I verified it with its serial number, Apple's website and MacTracker. One is EMC 2457 and the other EMC 2353. I believe the Early 2011 has the higher res screen. I see that the various antenna cables are different lengths. I can also see that the bluetooth boards are similar and I can interchange them physically, so the board with the different cables follows the display assembly. The display cable at the other end has the same pin configuration on both, but I know nothing more then that. The screws are all in the same places too, on both display assemblies. I have found web sites, that say you can't interchange the high-res and low-res, then other sites that say if the connectors fit, you can.
Can I swap the displays?
Is this a good question?
