replace 2009 MacBook Pro Logicboard with 2010 Logicboard?

Hi, i have here a Macbook Pro 13-inch from 2009 with a faulty Logicboard, i found a Logicboard of a 2010 13-inch Macbook Pro on Ebay and read somewhere that those two could be used in both cases. Can someone confirm this? That would be super-handy, because then i kind of would have a working AND upgraded Macbook Pro :)

Jonah, Sorry I just didn't see your question before now.

Generally you can only replace logic boards within the same series. In this case these are the systems within your '09 model: MacBookPro5,5. Here's is the '10 models: MacBookPro7,1.

Often Apple moves things around enough to make it hard to force fit even similar systems. I've not personally tried doing this on this series so I can't say its not possible, just be aware you're a trailblazer here.

Here's the Guides for both review them carefully before you start:

Good Luck!

Yes it's possible. 2011 is different.

so there are no problems whatsoever? no problems with mic, webcam cable, or anything? That would be great news indeed!
