Can I swap a2289 with a2338 motherboard?
I am just wondering if it works without buying a new computer. Edited: I want to know its software and connections work.
Actually, yes. You can swap motherboards, but you might have some difficulties with certain software you are using.
*Remember square one is M1 chip, and rectangle one is Intel chip.

@Dan was showing the comparison between 2019 intel and 2020 m1. This would avoid any confusion here.
Sadly its not that simple! First the case mounts are not at the same location between the two logic boards and many of the other parts are not compatible.
Here’s a good writeup between the Intel and the new M1 based 13” MacBook Pro M1 MacBook Teardowns: Something Old, Something New
@Kevin Zhang - This is the M1 13” MacBook Pro
This is the Intel 13” MacBook Pro
Note the shape of the Chips heatsink block the rectangle one is the intel and the square one is the M1
