    I have a macbook pro 8.1 in which I am going to replace the 2x2gb 1333 chips with 2x4gb 1333 chips. I also have a mac mini 3.1 which has 2x1gd 1066 chips. Can I replace them with the 2x2gb 1333 chips from my macbook pro?

    yes you can indeed.
    The chips will run at 1066 though. But you don't notice the difference

    A better response is 'You *should* be able to, but the system may be unstable.'

    There have been reports of kernel panics etc when faster clock speed RAM is used. However, there's nothing to lose in this case...
