    I have a iBook G4 with only 256mb of memory. I am going to be buying a 17" MBP and then upgrading it with 4gb myself. I was wondering if I can take one of the 1 gb chips from the intel based MBP and put it into my IBM based iBook G4? Anyone know if this will work. It would be great for me, and my wife who will be the sole owner of this iBook once my MBP arrives.

    Thanks

    No not at all
    It is completely different RAM
    The iBook uses DDR PC2700 The intel Macs use DDR2-667 MHz (PC2-5300)

    Thanks, sadly

    Oh well, glad I asked. Guess I will sell mine instead. Oh well. I do know that Memory is cheap for this computer. I guess we will upgrade it anyway. Thanks again Trevor,
