    Hi all,

    I've just upgraded the RAM in my mid-2010 MBP (2.4C2D), MC374LL/A from 4 to 8GB.

    I'd like to use the old RAM from mine to upgrade my Dad's White MacBook (mid-2010), 2.4C2D MC516LL/A and wanted to check the compatibility.

    The RAM came from Crucial and judging by the spec, *should* work, the only difference being the voltage (MBP = 1.5v, wMB = 1.35v).

    Any thoughts appreciated!

    Thanks.

    Nothing to worry, it should work. Ram may get a little hotter but will not cause any difference in either performance or reliability.

    Thanks.

    It actually looks like they're both 1.5v - I had 2 tabs open to the Crucial site for comparison, although one was the US and one the UK site.

    I'll give it a try and keep my fingers crossed :)

    Worked like a charm - 2 RAM upgrades for the price of 1 :D
