Swap display between 2011 & 2012 MacBook Pro?

Hi there!

Basically what I want to do is to take a high-res glossy(!) display from a primo 2011 Macbook Pro and use it as a replacement for the standard res screen on a mid 2012 Macbook Pro. Is this possible?

From what i've read its seems possible I'm not sure if the connectors will match.

I know it says that in part-list in here but I have read about others who've done this successfully.

I'm confused. You already knew the answer but asked a question about it anyway? Then you should ollow the direction of the others.

100% works, "but". Typing this on a 2012 MacBook Pro unibody 15 with a 2011 Unibody 15" high res matt display and top case.

The keyboard failed on mine, so I swapped the display and top case (and went for the upgrade along the way as a toasted 2011 model wasn't much more than a top case).

The "but" is that the connector is slightly different. The wiring is identical, but you have to bend (not break!) the tabs at either side of the connector on the logic board, which is a delicate job. The connector then slots in and locks into place as expected.
