    No, in general you are unable to, though all of Apple's Intel models so far, except for the Mac Pro use PC5300 (667Mhz DDR2) RAM.

    True, but the Mac Mini's use normal dimms, and the laptops use SO-Dimms (not sure about the iMacs) but don't think you can change a desktop's ram into your notebook and vice versa.

    No, it's not just going to be slow, and no you can't do it. Come on you guys, seriously, get to the point: the iBook uses DDR. The MacBook (and Mac Mini, and iMac) uses DDR2. They are completely incompatible. NO, you can't do it.
