Mac Ram Change


I have a MacBook. (not sure which one. the one right before the macbook air came out.) and a 21 inch iMac. (I belive the 2010 model.).

I want to get change it so that both have more RAM. The MacBook has 2 GB and the iMac has 4. Can I buy 2 4 GB RAM cards for my iMac and put the old iMac cards into the MacBook?

Basically, are all of Apple's RAM cards the same and exchangeable between different Apple computers?

If you have a Unibody MacBook (Aluminium or white), then yes, you can do as you want, as those MacBooks and the iMac you have use 204-pin DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM modules.
