    Are you sure?

    I'm mainly asking because the iMac says SO-DIMM and the MacBook Pro says SDRAM, still compatible?

    SO-DIMM is the physical size of the memory block, basically laptop size (tiny) rather than desktop size (huge). Both machines take SODIMM.

    SDRAM just means it's RAM basically. Synchronous something or other, just some marketing stuff. Don't let it put you off.

    Same year, same speed/chip (DDR3 1333MHz SODIMM). The RAM from one will 100% work in the other.
