    Hi folks

    I've been given a 2011 top spec 15", except it has a standard display. Is it at all possible to swap the high res screen from my 2010 model?

    Both laptops are in perfect working order, but it would be great if the newer one, which is quite a bit faster too, could get the improved resolution.

    Cheers!

    You would
    *Void warranty
    *Risk losing $2000
    *Risk damaging screen
    *Risk shattering glass panel
    etc.
    Too much effort for too little gain, but yes it's possible.
