Can I change my Logic Board

I have a dead logic board on my 13" MacBook Pro 2010 2.4 Core2Duo and I am planning on buying a new or even a used one. Can I replace the logic board of my Aluminum 13" 2010 MacBook Pro with the logic board of the Polycarbonate 13" 2010 Unibody MacBook? As far as I can tell, both have the same 2.4 Ghz Core2Duo Intel Processor and the same 1066 Front Side Bus Speed down to the same NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics chip.

Sorry no the MacBook series is different logic board than the MacBook Pro series.

Your MacBook Pro uses Apple P/N 661-5559 and the MacBook logic board is Apple P/N 661-5640

Here's the IFIXIT guides for both note they are very similar but different enough you can't swap them out.
