    Is the RAM and/or HDD from a Santa Rosa MacBook 2.2GHZ compatible with the new Penryn Macbook Pros?

    Yes they are. Any SO DIMMS that are compatible with MBP will work.

    Yes. Why? Because they both use the same chipset, Crestline (965 Express).

    Crestline is part of the Santa Rosa Centrino platform. When you wrote "Santa Rosa MacBook 2.2GHZ" you really meant Merom, which is the CPU.

    Thanks, the specs looked the same, but RAM these days has so many quirks I just wasn't convinced.
