    Hi guys

    was just wondering if it was possible to "upgrade" the cMBP lcd with one high res MBA 13" lcd?

    Given that the two LCDs are built and designed differently, the answer would be no. There are enough changes between the two that the MBA screen most likely won't even fit on the cMBP body and hinge design.

    He's asking about the 1400x900 MBA screen, not the rMBP screen, but the answer is probably similar.
