    Just reccieved my replacement screen for my old MacBook.

    The replacement screen is marked as LP133WX2 but the old broken screen is LP133WX1

    There is a difference in how the video connector is placed/located on the bottom.

    Is there any off-chance I can use the "new" screen in my old MacBook?
    Ordered this from the USA (am in Scandinavia) and with the cost of returning the screen, customs and all that hassle it's basically finding a solution or ditching my trusty MacBook.

    Probably not, the LP133WX2 fits the A1278 and A1342 (both 2009/2010), where the LP133WX1 fits the A1181. Different connectors.
