Important Logic Board #'s when searching for replacement

I would like to find out which #'s are imperative to match when buying a replacement logic board.

I am aware so far of:

Part #_ _ _ - _ _ _ _

Model #_ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _

Product EEE code contained in serial #

Processor # ex. T7400 SL9SK = 2.16 mhz

I don't know where to find the logic board's serial # on the board so I'm having difficulty determining the EEE code.

I want to buy the correct replacement board, but even used parts on eBay are very expensive and I don't want to screw this up.

If anyone has any advice on the important #'s I need to match up when finding a replacement logic board on a 13" MacBook, I would be very appreciative.

Or if I could find out my options in terms of boards that would fit and be compatible with my other components

I am willing to downgrade in processor speed, but am concerned the Core Duo boards won't fit in a case that a Core 2 Duo came out of. Or would be incompatible with my temp sensor connections(3 wall) or airport card.

Thanks to anyone that can help

Thank you for the answer.

I'm afraid I made a mistake not including the model # for the 13" MacBook I'm trying to repair.

I am trying to find out what boards will work in a 13" MacBook A1181.


Could you remove the battery and give us the specific information about which Mac you have. The A1181 includes 7 different models. I changed the above to the correct logic boards.
