Is it possible to swap a first gen Macbook Pro's keyboard for a last gen Powerbook's?

    The keyboard on my first gen Macbook Pro has been cutting in and out for the last few months and it's gotten to an unusable point that wasn't fixed by the Leopard software update and persists to all user accounts on the machine.

    Since I don't have Applecare on the machine, I was thinking about trying to swap the keyboard out with a last gen Powerbook's that I don't use all that much anymore. Does anyone know if these two are compatible? Anyone have experience swapping them out?

    They are entirely different. You won't be able to swap them... At least not easily (if at all).
