    As the title says, how different or similar are those two models of Macbook?

    I could get a cheap and working, albeit pretty hammered Macbook Unibody White 2010, so I'm thinking if it would be possible to transplant its internals (logic board et al.) into a Macbook Unibody White 2009.

    The mean reason for this is that the 2010 supports 16GB of RAM, as opposed to just 8GB on the 2009 model.

    Any advice?

    Thanks, that's encouraging.
    I'm worried about re-plugging the connectors though. I mean, it looks like some people are asking about how to reconnect them.

    Replugging isn't so difficult, as long as you have something like a spudger or even the butt end of a chopstick to help you. Patience is key as well.
