Any idea if the PCI-E airport card from a MBP would work in a MP?
Sure. Some of the newer Macbook Pro's don't use a PCI-E Airport card though and the Mac Pro may not have enough antennas for all of the card's ports. But it'd work just fine.
Why? Mac Pro has intergrate AirPort Extreme...
Not on the 2009 (4,1) model. It was optional. Until the 2010, wifi was optional on all Mac Pros.
That was my assumption, but wasn't sure why there would be separate part numbers of it was the case. Wanted to be sure there wasn't some weird size issue with the slot or antenna connector difference, etc.
I'm pretty sure it would work, I did it the other way around. (Bought a MP card and installed it in a MBP).
It'll work, I've done it myself, with my sisters dead MacBook Pro, just make sure you discharge it from electrical residual from the battery, otherwise you risk the logicboard to have a short circuit.
But 100% it'll work
Great, thank you. What did you do to discharge it?
