Will 2010 logic board fit in 2009 white unibody?

I have a late 2009 white unibody Macbook 2.26Ghz with broken logic board an was wondering if it's possible to replace it with the current 2.4Ghz white unibody logic board?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I just found the answer to my own question, and I found it on iFixit :o

2009 logic board:

MacBook Unibody (A1342) 2.26 GHz Logic Board

2010 logic board:

MacBook Unibody (A1342) 2.4 GHz Logic Board

For both it says:


All Unibody (Model A1342) 13" MacBooks

So it does fit! This is great :D

(for comparison, with the Airport (2009) card is says:


2.26 GHz Unibody (Model No. A1342) 13" MacBooks

So this is different from 'All A1342')

(Edit: For some reason I'm not allowd to put enters in my text to make it look better....)

I would ask someone like www.welovemacs.com before buying. Here are the differences in the two machines, It looks like the swap may work with the exception of the trackpad. http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ma...

The guys from welovemacs weren't weather or not it would work.

I did some comparison form pictures, and it seems like it could fit. Most important question:

Are all screwholes and connectors at the exact same spot (and same connector)?


I'm right in the middle of tearing down the 2.26 GHz right now and noted that the teardown is the same on for both machines.
