Do you want to swap out the entire enclosure or just the LCD panels of each screen? If the LCD's are the same size and use the same connector then you probably will be able to, however if you wan't to swap the entire fixture then you have to make sure that other things align and fit correctly such as the WiFi antenna and possibly webcam wires.
