Is the aluminium body of the Mid 2009 MacBook Pro inter-changeable?
I'm new to this so please excuse me if I ask (obvious) questions.
I have just been given a Mid-2009 MacBook Pro 15" A1286 Unibody. 2.66MHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 8GB Memory - 1067 MHz DDR3.
The aluminium shell / case isn't in good condition and the hinge is broken on one side + various other ailments...
Question: I would like to (attempt to) transfer the innerds of my MacBook Pro into another shell / case from a doner MacBook Pro, but I don't know if I can use any other shells / cases from other Unibody models / years or only my own particular make and model? Can anyone shed any light on this for me please?
I can't afford to buy a 'Spares Repairs' MacBook Pro, strip it down and then find it isn't compatible! So I'd really appreciate some constructive help and advise, please?
Many thanks in advance...
