Nope! Each series uses a unique logic board layout.

Even within the same model as in the case of the MacBook Air the 11" logic board won't fit the 13" and even within the same sized models the logic board is different within them as well! This is also true with the MacBook's, MacBook Pro's and the iMac's.
