    Hey guys;

    I just ordered a new iMac 27", which comes with 4 GB stock RAM (2x2 GB sticks). I ordered RAM from Crucial, to replace the stock RAM from the iMac.

    My 2009 Unibody MacBook Pro 15" also game with 4 GB stock RAM (2x2 GB). I'm wondering...is there any reason I can't/shouldn't put the left over RAM from my iMac into my MacBook Pro, bumping it up to 8 GB (4x2 GB)?

    Thanks for any/all advice!

    Yes you just need to be sure of the clock speed matching and the maximum amount the MBP can handle. I took RAM from my 24" C2D iMac and put it in a white MacBook circa 2007 and it works just fine.
