    I have a Macbook Pro - 2.4Ghz, A1286, 5,1 Late 2008. I would like to replace the motherboard. Can I replace it with a 2.8Ghz ?????

    I appreciate any help on this...

    If it's out of the exact same model, then I would expect so.

    Probably, but it definitely wouldn't be a very cost effective way to increase power.

    And to be honest, in day to day tasks, you'd be hard pressed to see the difference between the 2.4 and 2.8ghz setups.

    The logic boards are very expensive, tend to run close to $1K, plus re-connecting everything would be a nightmare. If you are a PC technician, then fine, but why? The difference in speed in the cpu wouldn't be noticed unless you are running extreme cpu all day long, and it would probably overheat anyway.
