    My 2006 Black Macbook needs a new keyboard and trackpad, I'm wondering if I can use one from a later model. They look virtually identical the only difference as far as I can tell is that the newer model has play/pause/stop markings on some of the fn keys.

    It will work just fine. The special function keys may not work with Tiger, but will work completely normal on Leopard and newer.

    Yes, totally interchangeable! I've done it multiple times.
