Those cables are very different as the Late 2008 MBP was when they switched to the Unibody design.

Early 2008 MBP 15":

MacBook Pro 15" (Models A1226/A1260) Display Data Cable

Late 2008 MBP 15" Unibody:

hey scott thanks a lot fot the great/fast info!

but one sort question, to really clarify myself:

-models MBP from early 2008 and late 2008 - same

isnt it?

thanks in advace again!!


No the display cables are different. The late 2008 MBP is a Unibody and not of the same era of architecture as the early 2008 MBP. The entire video circuitry is different. That is why Scott provided you with the links to the 2 different LVDS/ cables.


ok, great!

was my fault, i didnt get it in the right way

thanks a lot for claryfy it for my one more time
