Hey folks. I need to see if I can find a list of what logic boards I can install my macbook pro. The apple site is no help and wants me to go to their store. I know how that will go and not wanting to do that, again. So, I have an A1286 / W891204XJ6DZA M98A 2.4GSAM256MB. I bought it new in 2009 and used it a lot. Between learning about photoshop and also doing recordings on logic pro X with also hours and hours of live streaming and some games, the laptop ended up getting so hot the heatsink for the CPU became unattached from the logic board. I also lost wifi on the laptop a long time ago, but fixed that with a USB adapter. My goal, is to install something like A1286 (EMC 2556*) from a 2012, 2.7 GHz Core i7 (I7-3820QM). http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/?search_keywords=a1286 If not possible, anything upgrade from the old one is fine. however, i can't see if it will work in my system. My goal is to get a new logic board, install my SSD, DVD burner, 8GB ram from OWC, turn it on and be like nothing happened. My laptop broke over a year ago and had to buy a PC because of the power needs. The new macbook pro couldn't keep up with the PC ones. Seems like they are trying to make everything slim like and forgetting the power requirements. My reason to fix the mac now: Use it for my logic Pro X / photoshop and running kodi on it for my main entertainment system. My wife also wants a 4TB redundant HDD for all her photos. That should be the easy part. thanks for any and all help.
