Does a high resolution display out of i5 model fit in late08?

History

Hello ifixit comunity,

my Macbook Pro late08 (A1286) got some scratches etc. over the time. Since my last travel i have a grey shadow on the display and I want to replace it.

So I thought maybe I can get a higher resolution display. I found this display on ebay and I would like to ask is the connector the same in late08 and the newer i5 models?

Is the upgrade possible?

Greetings from Germany and many thanks in advance,

Hendrik

So are you going to do it?

hen, although the connectors look very similar, your board/firmware will most likely not recognize the higher res display.

+ they do have to speak the same language.

I doubt it will be compatible, Apple most likely designed it to work only with it's original display, not next-gen higher res display.

Hi. Thank you for your Answer. The connectors look exactly alike.. I think I'll give it a try as soon as I find one. Further answers are still very appreciated. I will post again when I found "my" solution :)
