    It is better to use the same type of memory for both slots.

    hi, i understand that, but my question is:
    it's better two pc2-5300 or two pc2-5300S modules on a macbook??

    or simply there is not one difference?

    the "S" designation stands for SODIMM which is what you would put in you macbook. it has 200 pins

    the other would probably be DIMM which has 240 pins which would be used for desktops
