    Hi. I was wondering if it is at all possible to upgrade the logic board in my Black Macbook Mid-2007 2.16 GHZ Core 2 Duo to a early 2009 model (one of the last non-unibody models)? Might there be any issues with connectors? Thanks.

    Yes loads of problems !!!

    Inverter cable is different, speakers are different, fan/heatsink and Bluetooth board different, DVD drive is SATA and not IDE, bottom case is different - the only bottom case that will fit the early 2009 MacBook logicboard is white....

    Cheaper, simpler to just buy a 2009 MacBook......

    Ok, thanks for the help. Really pises me off that Apple would just throw older macbook users under the bus for mountain lion and mavericks!

    Not sure why you are complaining...

    You can't run Lion, let alone Mountain Lion smooth with 4GB of ram - which I might add is the max amount of ram for your Macbook.

    Snow Leopard is still the best OS they have done. If they removed mobileme in an update and replaced it with iCloud you would be set. Still, there are workarounds to that.

    Best thing you can do for that Mac is max the memory and buy an SSD.
