    No,the ram in the ibook is most likely DDR and the macbook DDR2,so there is a difference,and the number of pins probably is different too.

    The notch in the RAM is in a different place. It physically won't fit.

    SD or DDR vs. DDR2. No can do, plus it won't physically fit. DDR2 is cheap, anyway - go buy yourself a 2GB kit of DDR2-667MHz.
