    No way to, I'm afraid. They're radically different structurally. The top case on the unibodies, even the plastic ones, is a much more all-inclusive part than it is on the older designs. So no, there's no way to.

    Can the top case w/ the "command" (vs. ) + play / pause keys (sometime in '08, I believe) be installed on a late '06? I need a new palm rest anyway…
