    I own a white macbook 2.2 ghz with 4 gig of RAM but i hate the body and it gets way too dirty!:( Is there like a place where i could just get a macbook pro body and put my parts in that? Or is there a place where I can get a cheap broken macbook pro? THANKS!:D

    Your logic board won't fit, at least not without a lot of alteration. Also you'll either need a new screen or buy a case with a screen. Even then the screen connector may not be the same, especially for the power inverter for the backlight. Your battery won't fit and the connections to a MBP battery are in different places to a MB so again this will require alteration at best.

    Basically once your done you'll wish you'd just sold the MB and bought a genuine MBP.

    Maybe if you will buy that, it only can contribute lower memory and space, and has limitations whatsoever. I suggest you buy what's the best so that it will be much suitable for your needs.:)
