Does anyone know if the lid component is compatible between the mid 2010 and early 2011 13" Macbook Pro?
I just picked up a 2010 model and want to use the display lid for my 2011 as it has permanent dents in it. From what I can see from looking around the hinges are different and by the specs they used different cameras but I would be swapping the display and cables between the two most likely.
The "white paste looking stuff" is not a from a ruptured battery.
There's pictures of other batteries with it, mine has it, it is normal - probably an afterthough to stop wiring going astray or shorting out.
