    Hello, I recently toasted the logic board of my macbook and I have another macbook in perfect working condition. the hard drive of the toasted macbook is still fine.. i'm wondering, can i just take the hard drive from the toasted macbook and replace it with the hard drive of the working macbook? would this work as if i had my old macbook? if not what can i do to get the data off of the non-working macbook.

    That should be just fine- the hard drives of all the versions of the MacBook released to date are functionally the same- only the size varies. Plus as a bonus they made it SO easy to switch them out too!

    You can also buy a 2.5 SATA drive enclosure with USB interface. They run about $30. Then it becomes an external drive for general use.
