Can I upgrade the logic board from the 2.4Ghz Core2Duo?

I want to try to upgrade/replace the A1278 logic board of my mid-2010 13inch macbook pro to a A1278 logic board, say from an early 2011 13inch macbook pro.

Is all the screwholes, cable connectors similar?

Hi Ivan,

This is not possible, because the motherboard is different and won't fit in the 2010 model. 2011 to 2012 would fit. but not 2010 with a later model.

Sorry Ivan Apple changes enough of the design so you can't retrofit a newer logic i Series board into an older Core 2 Duo system.
