    Hey, I have a Macbook air A1370 which is an i7 model (mid 2011), the screen on it is broken and I want to replace the whole clamshell (aluminum part too) because removing the aluminum bezel will bend it forsure.

    I have access to a working screen from a late 2010 Core 2 Duo macbook air, which is not yet in my possession but I am planning on purchasing it.

    My question is, will the screen from the Core 2 Duo macbook air fit the i7 macbook air? They appear to be the exact same, but someone has noted it has different metal parts or hinges which they didn't elaborate on, while others are saying that it will fit 100%.

    Part number for Core 2 Due macbook air: 661-5737
    Part number for i7 macbook air : 661-6069

    Any help is appreciated TIA.

    I know this is a little late, but the only real difference is the length of the antenna cable. The wifi card sits differently and so the length of the cable is different. I think the 2010 is shorter than the 2011, but I am not sure which one is shorter.
