    Hi everyone:
    My 15'' macbook pro got a dent on the bottom pan recently and I decided to change it.
    But I just found out that the bottom pan that I purchased has a Model A1211, while my macbook pro is A1226.
    By comparing the photos on ifixit, I personally can't see any difference between these two bottom cases.
    Could somebody please tell me if these two pieces are interchangeable? I don't wanna dissect all the components and find out they can't fit the new bottom pan.
    First post here. Wish somebody can help me! Thank you guys very much!

    This is a brand new bottom pan assembly for the 15" MacBook Pro. To determine which bottom pan you need, look on the bottom of your machine. In the block of text that starts... "Designed by Apple in California...Model Number", the model number of your machine is the type of bottom pan you need to order. So, for example, if the model # on the bottom of your machine is A1150, then you need to pick the option below with A1150 in the description..
