    Hi all,

    A friend gave me two sticks of 1GB each RAM from his Macbook Pro (he recently upgraded).

    I have the white 2nd gen macbook core 2 duo, max of 2GB of RAM.

    I'm wondering if what he gave me will work in my machine. I popped out RAM stick from mine, and the data on it reads:

    512MB 2Rx16 PC2 5300S-555-12-E3, model M470T6554CZ3-CE6 0649

    and what he gave me reads:

    1GB 2R8x8 PC2 5300S-555-12-E3 and the model is listed as M470T2953EZ-CE6.

    Everything seems like it'll work, same pin number, both made by samsung, and I believe their both the right clock rating/etc. - but will I blow things up if I put this in and it's not right? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
