    friends, good day. question; i have a 1-2yr old 2.1ghz macbook pro (original). is it possible to upgrade the video card in that unit to that of the one that is being shipped with today's macbook pro? i believe they're using a much better card than they were when they first came out.

    thanks in advance!

    nope...graphics cards are soldered on the the board. there might be a way to upgrade, but it would not friendly...and it certainly would void any warranty u may have left.

    thanks very much for the reply. from the sounds of it it's nothing that apple could do for me either.

    take good care

    The only way to do that would be to replace the logic board with one that has another GPU. I doubt the new boards would fit in your MBP. Even if it did, the cost for the board would not be worth it.
