    Easily done...

    Anyway, my understanding is that the MB and MBP now use the same type of RAM. If you look on the "Compare Specs" page of the MacBook details, you'll see footnote (2) says
    Not exactly in a prominent position on the page, and it doesn't mention whether this spec is something that has changed with the SR update. However, Crucial have an excellent warranty / return policy so if it doesn't work, you should still be golden.

    You could wait more than 7 minutes before demanding an answer.

    If you select the correct macbook then you get these specs

    Module Size: 1GB
    Package: 200-pin SODIMM
    Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300
    Specs: DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 128Meg x 64

    Compared to

    Module Size: 2GB
    Package: 200-pin SODIMM
    Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300
    Specs: DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64

    So apart from the size difference it is the same RAM. Cruical says the maximum for your macbook is 2GDs but i believe that to be wrong with the limit being 3GB.
