Sorry no,

The logic is very different between the different CPU series systems so you can't switch out the processor, nor the can you swap out the logic board as the layout and connections are different enough between the older & news models of the MacBook Pro 13" models.

As for your links these are MS Windows desktop parts not laptop parts so they just don't fit into the MacBook systems.

Okay thanks, the kit looked small on the picture so i thought it is universally installable.
