Upgrade from 2.3 GHz i5 logic board 2.9 GHz i7?
Hello everyone. I have a base model early 2011 macbook pro with the 2.3 GHz i5 chip and was wondering if it is possible to replace the entire logic board with the upgrade part that has the 2.7 GHz 2620m i7 chip. Has anyone done this? Is it possible?
Are newer boards of the same line, e.g. late 2011 and mid 2012 macbook pro logic boards physically compatible?
Long story short, I love my mbp, have upgraded to SSD and 16 Gb ram and am feeling limited by the processor (and video performance!) and cannot afford a new computer right now.
Thanks in advance for any good answers!
Is this a good question?
