i7 and C2D logic boards interchangeable?
I have got a MacBook Pro 17" unibody from early 2009, equipped with a 2.66 C2D CPU.
Mag Safe adapter has 85 watts.
I like to know if I can exchange the C2D logic board with a later built i7 logic board (of the A1297 17" unibodies) by simply swap out my C2D board and swap in a i7, let 's say 2.2 GHz CPU, board, made during 2011?
I think it will be a performance increase because of CPU type and RAM speed.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Is this a good question?
