    Hi everyone !

    My Early 2011 MBP 15'' just crashed last week (classical graphical glitches -> motherboard needs to be changed) so I just bought a Mid 2012 MBP 15'' to replace it.

    The problem is that the latter has the low res glossy display and my old one had the high res one.

    Do you think that it is possible to swap the screens (from the 2011 to the 2012) ? Is it a plug and play modification ?

    The idea would be to take the whole screen assembly off (aluminium case and camera included) from the old one and swap it with the new one.

    Thanks a lot guys, good evening !
