Possible to install a Retina Display on an Early 2011 unibody MacBook?

My early 2011 unibody Macbook pro 15" LCD broke.

While I am now researching how to fix it by myself, it came to my mind: is it possible to install a Retina Display on it?

What would make it possible? And what wouldn't?

Many thanks!

Unfortunately, the simple answer is no. The graphics card would have issues running the display if you were even able to instal it. The Retina display MacBook Pro also has different connectors and dimensions then the regular Macbook Pro and therefore not fit and not connect. The firmware for you computer will also not scale the resolution and render properly so you would have a 1440 x 900 resolution displaying on a 2880 x 1800 display which would only take up 1/4 of the display. I wish it were possible but it just isn't. You will have to replace it with a regular 15" 2011 panel.

Hope this Helps
