    Well, I have a 15" MBP intel core duo with a 1.83GHz processor (one of the very first models). I need to replace my keyboard because a few of the keys don't work but I'm having trouble finding which keyboard is compatible with my specific machine. Does anyone know how I can find out which keyboard is for my specific machine? I just want to make sure I am order the correct piece first because I have found plenty of different keyboards on numerous sites that all say different things. Ex: part number xxx-xxxx or ribbon number: XXXXXXXXXXXX

    The ribbon number on my keyboard is AEPW1PLU016 but I can't find the part number anywhere. thanks for your help in advance.

    Might I suggest giving Apple a call and pretend you are shopping. Get them to give you a part number and then say you will call back. Then just look it up on the internet.

    yea, I have looked on ifixit some but here's where im getting confused..

    i wanted to buy this one because it looks to be completely compatible but then under the computers listed it only says 2.2 GHz and 2.4 GHz comps.

    i've also seen on other sights that some say "compatible with ALL macbook pro 15" or something like that. also that ebay listing above has 2 part numbers so i am just completely confused.

    anyone know if i can find a part number or any necessary details on my keyboard if i take it out?

    Any keyboard that has a part number of "922-7183" will work. Just because the ebayer forgot to mention all of the compatible models doesn't mean it won't work. So yes, that keyboard from ebay that you linked to will work.
