Hello MacRumors,

My friend has a 2009 Macbook Pro 13.3" Model:W8930DH166E with a broken logic board and I have a 2009 Macbook 13.3" with a broken LCD screen.

I believe that both of my Macbooks use the same LCD screen and I was wondering if it is possible to transfer the screen from the Pro to the Regular.

Will I run into any issue with the graphics card or the ports?

Thanks for the help,

If all connectors are the same and in the same place, I don't see why a straight swap wouldn't work.

Do you plan on doing the work yourself? If you feel comfortable with it, might as well dismantle both to the point where you'll see the display cable and the way it attaches to the logic board, you'll have your answer then.
