Are 2010/11 LCDs and Top Cases Suitable for 2012 Replacement?

Tekst:

I have had the misfortune of dropping a 2lb. external hard drive onto my 1-week old MacBook Pro 15" Unibody with Hi-Res anti-glare display.  It caused a 1cm wide dent in the top keyboard case to the left of the trackpad and a piece from the external hard drive enclosure broke off and ricocheted onto the LCD, causing a 4-5mm scratch in the LCD screen.  Please note: this is not a Glossy display, there is no glass!

Obviously it's too early for any 2012 replacement parts to be available without buying directly from Apple (which I already found out would be about a $1200 fix for parts and labor).  This machine's model number is A1286, the same as the 2010 and 2011 models.

I'm wondering if any of these parts be a suitable replacement from either 2010 or 2011 versions:

LCD Screen (only, no display assembly)

Complete display assembly

Top Case/Keyboard

I've heard that due to differences in the logic board layouts from year to year, the required length for the video cable can vary, which would be a non-starter.  I'm hoping someone here at iFixit who has done the 2012 tear down might know!

Many thanks!
