Can I upgrade from a 2.16Ghz to a 2.4Ghz Logic board?
I have a 13" Macbook white 2.16Ghz Energy Star (mid '07) A1181 logic board core 2 duo (I know this cuz it uses the JST 3 wall heat sink). The GMA950 video card became corrupted and now I have to replace the entire logic board (those bastards!!!). I see on Ebay some A1181 logic boards that are selling between $250-$350, and I'd much rather repair the problem than have to buy a new computer for double or triple that. I can definitely replace the logic board myself, but if I can increase the processor speed while I'm at it, I don't see why not--especially when the price difference between the two logic boards is only $50. I see that the connectors are pretty similar. Do you think this is possible? If so, would it be a clean swap or would I need to replace other parts as well? Thanks in advance!!!
Is this a good question?
