    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out if it is possible at all to upgrade a Macbook Pro 5,3 Mid 2009 to a retina panel.

    There is a 50+ pages thread on the matter here http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=207751 but I can't see if it works on my particular model.

    Anybody tried it? High definition panels are not so expensive anymore

    Hmmm, I see. Not sure an upgrade to rhis resolution is worth it, it's a lot of hassle for not much more pixels. Besides, editing the EDID ROM must be quite a PITA :)
