    Hi guys,

    I just recently bought a new Macbook Pro 17" Unibody. It currently has 4GBs of RAM and I would like to upgrade to 8GBs. Before, I had a Macbook Pro 15" ( Old version, 2008 Penryn Version ), and I currently have 6 GBs of RAM inside ( the max, 4 GB + 2 GB ) I also have another spare 2 GB chip and 2 1GB chips for my old Macbook Pro. Would these RAM chips work for my new one, or would I have to buy new RAM?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    You probably have to buy new, unless it is the same type, e.g. DDR3.
