Use Newer back case (lid) parts with my late '08 MBP?
I have a Late '08 MBP.
It's sadly become badly dented in one corner and doesn't close nicely - the hinge is being forced apart.
I want to get new case parts and move my perfectly functioning logic board etc. into them.
Can I use a back case (lid) from a different year (say 2011) with my '08 LCD?
The parts are externally identical, but I realise the internal structure may have changed too much.
If not: Can I use a whole display assembly from another year? Or has the logic board connector changed? (or is it otherwise incompatible?)
I've found '08 top cases (has keyboard etc) that I can buy, but when it comes to back case (lid) parts, there just seems to be a lot of 2011 ones floating around (or they are so expensive it's not worth it).
Hope someone here knows about this sort of thing!
Is this a good question?
