    So my P170EM's motherboard died on me. I have a chance to get a p150EM motherboard for a good price. My question is, will there be no issues swapping its motherboard to p150em? I find both boards looks identical but I want an expert opinion before doing this.

    There are a few to think of that I remember

    1. Power jack
    2. Keyboard ribbon placement
    3. HDD/SSD positioning issue .

    But there is a work around for all this

    Thank you. Will keep in mind with the modifications needed for those 3 points above.

    BIOS is a little more limited as it assumed slightly worse cooling
