    How hard do you guys think it would be to swap a standard res 17" MBP screen for a high res one? Is it something that you think you could do quite easily? I have a 17" MBP which I am selling in order to buy a high res version... but now I am wondering if it might just be possible to just buy a high res screen somehow and sell the old one on ebay. What you guys think???

    PS... I got this MBP for free...so I am not worried about warranty's and crap like that.

    It's been done to a PowerBook before, you might want to check this thread out.

    IMO you'd just be better off selling yours and buying the one you want. I don't think I would attempt surgery on a MBP...

    There will be someone out there who wants to swap. I don't think it is worth ripping a new laptop apart to swap screens, to much chance of accidental damage occurring. Just my humble opinion.
