    I've just upgraded my new Macbook Pro from 2Gb to 4Gb, and was wondering if I can reuse that memory to upgrade my wifes Macbook to 2Gb when I buy it in a couple of weeks time? It seems to be the same spec memory, but thought I'd best check in advance.

    The memory in all Intel Macs (released so far), apart from the Mac Pro is exactly the same.

    So you'll be fine.

    Is the Mac Mini using SODIMMs? I know that the first gen Mini with the G4 used desktop RAM (Well, I am 99% that is what I remember), so I think it is weird that the Intel Mac Mini uses SODIMMs since I thought that the cooling system on the Intel was smaller than the G4, as well as the lack of the modem and whatnot...

    Oh well... you can use the MacBook Pro RAM in the MacBook.

    I did the exact same thing for my MB pro and wife's MB. It worked without any trouble.
