    Hi

    I am trying to upgrade my Macbook ..... it is late 2007, it is a Macbook3,1.

    At present I have 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM and would like to get it up to 4GB - have a lot of data fro Uni. I recently found a 4GB for sale. Emailed seller but he has not got back to me in the last few day. J

    Would anyone know if I can use
    4GB Memory 2x 2GB 1333MHz DDR3 PC3-10600 RAM

    Specs:

    1333Mhz
    4Gb (2 x 2Gb)
    Brand: Hynix (original factory memory)
    DDR3 PC3
    Code stated on modules:
    2Gb 1Rx8 PC3 - 10600S - 9 - 10 - B1

    They have been removed from a Macbook Pro 2011

    I am wondering if it will be okay for my computer?

    Thank you
    Kath

    No you cannot use DDR3 ram....

    You need DDR2 ram - PC5300 (200 pin sodimms) and since you have a MacBook 3,1 you have to ensure that it really is PC5300 - PNY ram, although marked and sold as PC5300, seems to be problematic and rarely works in your MacBook...

    Try Crucial or Kingston ram or keep looking on eBay - DDR2 is a lot more expensive than DDR3 though.
