    so i was having problems with my black macbook the one before the aluminum macbooks, so i took it in to the apple store and they said it was a logicboard problem, so does that mean theyll be switching it with the new logicboards?

    If by new logic board you mean the logic boards in the current aluminum macbook then the answer is no. Apple will replace your current logic board with the same model.

    The logic board is not interchangeable between the old and the new macbook.
    Differn CPU, different graphics, different ram, no firewire.. and more. So no you wont be getting the new version.
    You will be getting a replacement of what is in there now.

    Some people have got their whole macbook replaced with the new unibodys, but dont get your hopes up.

    Well design wise the boards in the newer whitebook should fit, as far as upgrading the board for a fee, I've never heard of that. You'd be better off checking with your local apple store though. Best of luck.

    As far as I can tell, no one has reported getting their logicboard switched with one from the latest white MacBook. You could ask however.

    It is not going to happen - if you get a Core Duo MacBook fixed under AppleCare you will get a Core Duo logicboard as a replacement....

    Anyway the white usb and headphone sockets would look silly on a BlackBook.
