- 2 GHz Black Intel Core Duo Macbook, 2 GB Ram, 100 GB HD, 60 GB black iPod Video, 8 GB iPhone
I'm thinking of upgrading my ram from 1GB to 2GB in my macbook, and my dad needs to upgrade his ram on his not-so-new-anymore 17-inch G5 iMac. If I buy my 2GB kit, would it be possible to take the 1GB kit from the macbook and just put it in his G5 iMac? I'm not sure as one is a desktop and one's a notebook, and also one is a G5 and one is intel. Thanks!

AFAIK, intel use a newer type of RAM than PPC so I'm not too sure.
G5 use DDR SDRAM & Intel use DDR2 SDRAM.
It seems that the "iSight G5" takes DDR2 but the "Original Ambient Light Sensor G5" takes DDR ... ??
