    No it absolutely will not work. They have different physical sockets as well as being electrically incompatible.

    MacBook/MacBook Pro/iMac intel/Mini intel = DDR2 RAM 667 MHz

    iBook G4 and Most Powerbook G4 Aluminum (except the last HD / DL model) = DDR RAM 333 MHz

    iBook G3 and Titanium Powerbook = PC133 RAM

    Thanks

    No - They use different RAM

    The memory used in the Macbooks and iBooks is quite different.

    The Macbooks / Macbook Pros use DDR2-667 Memory
    The iBook you listed used 167 MHz DDR SDRAM

    See Apple's developer docs for more info on the RAM types used in the various machines.

    For the newer intel Macs here - > http://developer.apple.com/referencelibrary/HardwareDrivers/idxAppleHardware-date.html#doclist
    and here for the PPC (G3/G4/G5) Macs -> http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Hardware/hardware2.html
