    I have a macbook aluminum unibody with a screen problem. I want to replace the entire assembly(screen,airport, hinges etc) with one from a macbook pro of the same size. Will 2011 i5 work? They're the same size.

    Nope, they're the same size but that's where the similarities end. They might have the same LVDS connector, but the MacBook uses a completely different panel to the pro, and has a completely different I/O connector.
