Top case part compatibility?
I've recently been donated a Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz
Problem is that there are a number of keys on the right side of the keyboard that either do not work, or stick (repeat) intermittently. I have popped off several of the offending keys to see if there is some mess underneath but it appears clean. Also the trackpad seems to be a little 'frisky' at times - not allowing me to select drop-down lists other than the first/top of the drop-down?!
Looking at options to repair this unit, I'm wondering whether the top case / keyboard of other Macbook Pro models would fit this 1121 model - thinking I might try to pick up a parts unit & simply swap out the top - doing just the keyboard looks really fiddly!!
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
Это хороший вопрос?

Thanks very much for your advice about the various models, Ben.
Mayer I think you're absolutely right!! I'll spend some time using an external USB keyboard to see if there are other things going on - thats a great tip.
It seems from the little research I've done so far, that these models are plagued by battery related problems that often effect the function of the keyboard and/or trackpad - because of the location of their ribbon connectors right next to the battery. Cheers to you both!
