Swap screens or cases?

I wonder which option is better if either one is at all possible: To put the logic board and possibly all the ports (USB etc.) of an early 2008 Penryn 2.1 GHz, S/N: W8834FJD0P0, in the case of a mid 2007 Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz MacBook, S/N: 4H648NLRWGK or to put the the display assembly of the mid 2007 in the early Penryn?

If I would put the display assembly in Penryn, could I just remove the Airport card from the mid 2007 and put it in Penryn? Otherwise Airport won't work since there are 3 cables connected to the Airport card on the mid 2007 MacBook and only 2 in Penryn.

Best regards,

Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.1 13" (White-08) Specs

Identifiers: Early 2008 - MB402LL/A* - MacBook4,1 - A1181 - 2242

wgk Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 1.83 13" Specs

Identifiers: Late 2006 - MA699LL/A - MacBook2,1 - A1181 - 2121


The first one (Early 2008 etc.) is right but the second one is not. It's this is one: Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.16 13" (White) Specs, Identifiers: Mid-2007 - MB062LL/A - MacBook2,1 - A1181 - 2139. Or did I totally miss something out? (Just recently I asked another question about an SSD from MB Air and in that question I mentioned the "Late 2006" MB but it's not related to this question/post).

Does opo mean the S/N of the Airport card? I'm still eagerly waiting for an answer to my original questions :)

You should put the display itself in the 2008, so that it doesn't have any compatibility issues. However, if it's a part of the display assembly that isn't the display, then put the airport card from the 2007 in the 2008, and take the whole display assembly.
