    I just upgraded my MBP 2011 to 8GB and I have these 4GB 133MHz ram leftover. Can I install it onto my MacBook 2009 Early?

    Yes, even if the 2009 used 1066/1067 ram it will just down clock your leftover ram. As long as they're both using DDR3 it should be fine.

    Cheers,

    I believe this laptop will recognize it at 1333. I have an early 09 c2d iMac and came with 1066 stock. I installed the 8gb 1333 kit on it and it reads it and haven't had a kernel panic or any problems.
