Upper cases interchangeable here?

I have two Core 2 Duo Macbooks, A1181. One has a broken upper case cable, which is out of stock. It is of the silver variety.

The other is ok, but it is of the orange/brown variety. They are clearly not interchangeable - they have different connectors at the upper case.

My question is: can I just take the entire upper case with cable and use it on the laptop with the broken cable? Are they interchangeable?

Is this a good question?

Please give the EMC # of both machines.

Aren't all the A1181 just white ?

There are no EMC numbers on the back. They are mid-2007.

One is black and one is white, but I don't care about that.

The first answer below is NOT correct. White and black upper cases with the same type of cable may be interchangeable, but ones with different types of cables (silver vs orange/brown - see original question) are not. Tried it, and it did not work.

Are u sure both were function I test different coloured machines with different tops quite often when I'm repair or returning them ?

Yes they are interchangeable on certain models however we will need to know the serial number of each one, you will even see a few online being sold with different coloured top cases to make multicoloured Macs!

This is so wrong, even the internal boards have different type connectors. There are 17 different A1181 machines, made from 2006 to 2009, you have to know exactly which ones you are dealing with
