    Hello everyone,

    I've read successful stories about changing logic boards on 2013 MBA to a board from 2017 model.

    Do you think it's possible to change in my A1369 13" MBA to a newer board? To something with 8Gb.
    Any advice would help.
    Thanks!

    Not possible due to differences in the main logic board layout, connectors, etc.

    Unfortunately not; there were significant changes in the layout of the board between 2010 and 2011, so it'd be incompatible with the later years. Sorry mate :(

    What you can do however is find a 2013 or later MBA that has water damage on it then swap out the logic board, track pad and battery and you should be okay... I did that for my now Early 2015 13inch MBA 2.2GHZ i7/8GB. Runs perfect.
