|MacBook CPU Upgrade (motherboard swap):
"CPU upgrade (via logic board swap) - MacBook
Hey there - just wanted to mention that I upgraded my MacBook 4,1 from the 2.1GHz CPU to a 2.4GHz. It's not a real surprise that it's possible, since that exact macbook was offered in both speeds, but still good to know for certain. I'm replacing the logic board in another macbook for someone, and figured I'd buy the 2.4GHz one for myself and give them mine :-)
anyway it works great. Love your site!
Thanks Dan. (What was the board cost?)
