    Hello guys,
    I have a pair of DDR3 memories (2x1GB) that came with my Unibody 13'. My friend has a Macbook Black (Core2Duo 2x512Mb DDR2) and I'd like to give these memories to him. Do you think it will work? DDR3 memory on his DDR2 Macbook?

    ps: I know it would run on 667Mhz speed and not on 1066MHz. ;)

    Thanks
    G

    No love...

    I'm afraid that it won't work in your friends machine. DDR2 and DDR3 have differing number of pins. DDR2 has 200 pins and DDR3 has 204 pins.
