Can i take out the motherboard and CPU and replace it with a newer one?

I was wondering if i could take out the CPU and Motherboard of an early 2011 13" macbook pro with a 2.3GHz dual core i5, and replace it with a 2012 2.9GHz 13" dual core i7? I don't care about the costs but i just want to know if it's possible? I've upgraded my computer to the max so far, but i need some more processing power and i think the new ivy bridge processors will do me some good. Thanks for any replies

NOPE.
I'm about 99.9% sure it won't fit.
Plus the rest of the stuff won't plug or won't be compatible.

  • Can you swap out the logicboard of an older model mac for a newer one?

    So i just bought a mac on ebay, its in good working condition, however i was wondering if i was able to swap out an older model logicboard for a new one.  The mac i currently have is a unibody mac, MB466LL/A, and the logic board i was looking to possible switch it out with would be the (Logic Board 661-6158 820-2936-B.)  Let me know if this is possible.  Work on computers often and have built many pc's so that aspect will not be a problem, im just wondering if this request is feasible.

    Yes, its possible.

  • I need to get photos off a water damaged iPhone 3GS. Can I take out the component that has the photos (is this the main board?) and put it into another of the same phone to retrieve the photos? Please help

    I need to get photos off a water damaged iPhone 3GS. It spent time underwater, saltwater. I let it dry for a week, turned it on, the apple symbol came on, then it died. I need to retrieve my photos off it. Can I take out the component that has the photos (is this the main board?) and put it into another of the same phone to retrieve the photos? Please help

    You're talking about the logic board. The two most likely things to get toasted, with water damage, are the battery(it shorts out), & the logic board. The worst water damage would be salt water. I'm afraid your logic board is toast.

  • If you have iPhone4 and can you take out the sim card from iPhone4 and transfer it in to new iPhone4s?

    if you have iPhone4 and can you take out the sim card from iPhone4 and transfer it in to new iPhone4s?

    Under the circumstances this will probably considered a dumb question.
    I currently have a jailbroken unlocked 3GS with a GoPhone plan.  Works great.  I am considering upgrading to a new factory unlocked 4S.  Will I be able to swap in my current SIM card and go?

  • Can I take out the underlines in photo gallery?

    Can I take out the underlines in photo gallery? I mean the underlines for "Back to Album", "Previous" and "Next". I understand they are functional but I just don't think they look great with the whole composition. Thank you!

    This might work:
    Create a dummy hyperlink on that page and set the color, rollover color and underline options that you want on those links. Click a couple of times on the *Use for New Links on Page* button. Delete the dummy hyperlink and republish. That should change the links you mentioned.

  • Help! How can I take out the mini-disc stuck in mac?

    Help! How can I take out the mini-disc stuck in mac?
    I insert it into the mac, but the OS cannot load the disc and the disc cannot be ejected even i pressed the "eject" button.

    This happened to a family members macbookpro. A mini-cd inserted, couldn't be mounted or ejected by the drive.
    I cut a rectangle from a cereal box about two inches wide and 6 inches long. Abour an inch and half from one end in the middle I cut a notch and bent it down a little.
    I................I

    I then inserted it slowly into the drive notch down and slowly pulled out. I did this few times and caught the mimi-cd and removed it. The drive has worked flawlessly for several years
    A few days after this happened I was in BestBuy and an Apple rep was there displaying new Apple products. I asked him about it and he said they have a tool that ***** it out.

  • My company runs Adobe Acrobat XI on a PC.  Our PC went down and we replaced it with a new one.  We need Acrobat XI on it and have bought it already.  How can I get it put onto our new computer?

    My company runs Adobe Acrobat XI on a PC.  Our PC went down and we replaced it with a new one.  We need Acrobat XI on it and have bought it already.  How can I get it put onto our new computer without having to buy it again?

    Hi chrisb75729216,
    I checked with your account but could not find any order history so you might be using another email address on forums.
    You will first need to deactivate Acrobat from old machine and then install Acrobat on the new machine by activating with the same serial number.
    Please download Acrobat XI pro from here: Other downloads
    If you have single user license, then remember that the software can be activated on maximum two computers, say your desktop at work and laptop at home.
    Regards,

  • My ipod touch broke then replaced it with a new one. I already dloaded iOS5 on the old one. When I connected my new unit it says it won't load the previous back because the new one is not up to date... Do I really have to download iOS5 again?

    Yes, you have to update the iPod in order to retore from backup. The iOS on the "new" has to be aequal to r greater than on the iPod from which the backup was made.  The iOS downloads are unique to an iDevice and model (the one for a 3G iPod will not work for a 4G iPod).

  • I just got My iPad 2 for a few days ago but why the charger is not working, how they are going to replaced it with a new one ? ?

    Please be informed me... with my battery or charger problems....
    my iPad 2 charger is not working....
    since I've got it for five days ago, I only use it for three times....
    Are they going to replace it with a new one ?

    Most likely yes. There's a manufacturers warranty against defects for a year. I'd contact your place of purchase and talk to them about it.
