    I am planning on getting 8 GB of RAM for my MBP, will my current 4 GB be usable in my wife's MacBook? Both computers are the current generation.

    They both use 1066MHz DDR3 SODIMMs so yes, it should work.

    You can find specs on all Apple products with Mactracker. That will tell you exactly what RAM works in any Mac.

    OP said they are both current gen

    3 year-old MacBook uses 667MHz DDR2 what is incompatible with DDR3.
