    My 2009 macbook has 2gb ram and my 2010 macbook pro has 4gb ram. I bought 8gb ram for my 2010 macbook pro and is it possible if I can put the old ram in the pro into the 2009 macbook? Would there be any issues if I do? Thanks!

    The MacBook runs at a higher temperature than the MacBook Pro. Therefore the memory will expand and possibly ignite.

    TLDR; no.

    Depends on the exact model of 2009 MacBook. Check :apple: then About this Mac - if it says DDR3 then it'll work fine.

    Make sure you have marshmallows ready because the macbook will ignite if you put that ram in it.

    Then please explain why exactly a 2009 macbook running snow leopard, one year older than the other computer i have, will "ignite" if I put in the 4gb ram?
