    Probably. With a lot of hacking. And the GPU wouldn't like it.

    You'd be better off getting a MBP and taking it to a belt sander. Higher chance of still working at the end of it.

    Impossible. The display unit is not only thicker but it's not a plug and play process.

    Technically, it's possible. I've done this to PC laptops and netbooks before. It would be a PITA, finding the right panel, possibly modifying the connectors, but it is technically possible. Worth it? Probably not. But it would be a fun frankenproject.

    This would be my chief concern in this case. Wouldn't want to see UI performance after that hack has been performed. I'd put my bet on the UI lag being somewhere between mildly barf-inducing and shambolic.
