P50 laptop with P51 mobo

I've got a P50 laptop that's out of warranty with a bad motherboard.  I was just going to order a replacement mobo, but I figured as long as I was doing the replacement, I wondered if the base and components were all the same between the P50 & P51, allowing me to upgrade to a P51 mobo instead.  I thought I'd see if anyone knows if this is theoretically possible before I plunked down the money to try it.

As best as I can tell from looking at the P50 and P51 Hardware Maintenance Manuals they are similiar if not identical, but I have never heard of anyone performing this type of upgrade before, so you may have to try it and see whether or not it works.
