    My guess would be no. I'm not sure if you can or not but I had a similar problem - the logic board on my PB 17" 1.33 went bad. Apple replaced it with a newer logic board and since then I have been getting kernel panics every hour. I have arranged for Apple to replace this again later this week. Apple's service rep said they may have either replaced it with a bad logic bord OR a "newer" logic board.

    Maybe someone else here with more technical of a background can enlighten us here.
