How to install 2009 logic board into early 2008 mbp?
Once the warranty expires I want to install a more modern logic board from a 2009 model MacBook Pro 15 into my pre-unibody 2008 MacBook Pro 15. Having measured the case size of both systems I've realized there is enough space to work in as the unibody is only 1/5 of an inch wide and deeper. Most answers I've seen have said this can't be done, which is exactly why I want to do it. I'm aware that succeeding in this will require a lot of work. I've also looked at pictures of the both the logic boards and the internal layouts of both computers, and I believe the smaller size of the newer logic boards will work in my favor. I'm wondering how one would go about accomplishing this admittedly difficult task. Please bear in mind that if you wish to say that this or that can't be done, find another thread. I'd greatly appreciate directions and ideas on how to accomplish this. I have no problem making modifications to the internal layout if that's what is necessary. Thanks in advance everyone.
Is this a good question?
