my macbook screen was damaged and being in a jam, i purchased a mac mini, (turned out to be cheaper than fixing the screen - at least through apple care) -- I bought the least expensive model a few months ago with 2.26ghz and 2GB of ram -- however my macbook had 4GB. Wanted to see if anyone knows if it is fine to use with the Mac Mini?

Macbook Ram Specs: 2 DIMMS of Samsung 2GB 2Rx8 PC2-5300S-555-12-E3 M470T5663EH3-CE6

I'm guessing it's not because the mac mini's RAM is the 2GB 1067 MHz DDR3 and I'm pretty sure the Macbook RAM is DDR2 -- any help much appreciated.
