Change MacBook Pro keyboard?
- Member Since

I would like to get a used 2006 MacBook Pro (MA610LL/A) off of eBay to replace my 2005 Apple iBook G4, because I cannot afford a brand new MacBook Pro and this will still be a MAJOR upgrade!
But..I don't like the keyboard style. I want it to have the spaced-out keys like on the new MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs. The really thin, awesome feeling, key style used in all of Apple's keyboards now. But this MacBook has the old-larger keys like most PCs still use, and like my iBook still has.
If I purchase an old MacBook Pro, is it possible to buy a newer MacBook Pro keyboard (with the spaced backlit keys) and put it in this MacBook (in place of the old keyboard) and it still work? That way I would have an older MacBook, with the new style keyboard? Or will that not work?
Because I saw a 2007 MacBook Pro on eBay that looked just like the 2006, but it had the black spaced new style keyboard? I looked at more 2007s and the rest of them still had the old style keyboard that was the same as the 2006 MacBook Pro, which leads me to believe it is possible to replace the old style keyboard with one belonging to a newer MacBook Pro? Does anyone know if it's possible to do that and it still work? Please let me know! Thanks!
