    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if it's possible to change LCD LED 13.3" WXGA in my MacBook Alu Uni to anything else that is better ?
    IPS ? or the one from older Air ? or current Air ? anything ?

    LCD in Air is much better with colours.
    Size and backlit are the same. Anyone tried this ?

    Best regards,
    L.

    Did you try a search for it? A number of threads talk about trying to swap the displays on laptops.

    Screen swapping is not a simple thing.

    You can't just take out a few screws, unplug something, put in a new one, screw it back together and you're done.
