    I bought my MBP right after they were released as I was starting college.

    It's a Yonah, and therefore has a 2GB ram limit, which isn't really sufficient for running virtual machines(XP for Ubuntu) and I'd really like to be able to run 4GB of RAM.

    I see that on eBay I can pick up a Penryn logic board for less than the difference than what I could sell this for.

    Could the logic board just be swapped and stuff? Or will that result in some compatibility/no ability issues?

    Thanks!

    If not, what do you think a reasonable resale value is for my Macbook Pro? The specs are in the signature.

    I believe the motherboard layout and/or ports are different.
