    Hi guys,

    just a short question: Is a bottom case from a 17" 2,4Ghz-model compatible to a 2,33Ghz-model?

    thanks!

    As the dimensions fit, I wouldn't think, that it won't work.

    Are the screws on both models in the same place? If so, you could try it.

    Maybe this will help you: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Device/MacBook_Pro_17"_Core_Duo .

    Have checked it now and it doesn´t seem to be compatible:(
    Does anyone know where can get a fitting bottom case without having to pay an exaggerated price?

    What about eBay? They sure must have some parts lying around....
    Or you could ask at a Gravis, maybe they have spare parts for a not so hefty price.

    You could ask around at macuser.de, if someone has spare parts there.

    Otherwise I don't know any place else, just wait for an eBay auction maybe.

    Yeah I already have placed a thread there and subscribed the ebay search. I guess I´ll have to wait till the right case appears there.

    Edit:
    Sorry for thelong time taken. I gave it a try and it fits without any problems. I have used the bottom and top case of the 2,4Ghz model and had no issues:)
