    Yesterday, I upgraded the RAM in my late 2009 white MacBook from 2 GB to 4 GB. I also have an early 2008 iMac, which currently has 1 GB of RAM installed. Would I be able to put the old 2 GB from the MacBook into the iMac?

    You can find specs on all Apple products, including maximum RAM:
    Check the RAM type to see if it's compatible with both machines.

    I have the 2.8ghz 24" 2008 iMac currently running 4gb ram perfectly fine, so it will be fine to have 2gb in your mac :)

    Add 6GB runs smooth no problems and yes you can use your memory from MacBook Pro.
