Can I use the early/late 2011 display assembly on a 2012 machine?
I want to replace the complete glossy hi-res display assembly with a hi-res matte one.
The issue is that there aren't really any matte 2012 units available.
Is it possible to use the early/late 2011 display assembly on a mid 2012 MacBook Pro with the same resolution?
I've found some answers that say it is possible some say it isn't.
- - AirPort Exrreme card from 2012 can be used in 2011 model -> same antenna design
- - Same specs of the Facetime camera (same connector/cable length?)
- - Same resolution -> same logic board connector?
- Question: Are the magnets to sense the lid closing within the 2011 display assembly at the same location as they are in the 2012 part?
Thank you very much for your help!
