Myfirst Mac was an SE/30. My first computer from Apple was an Apple IIc, both of which I still have boxed up in their original boxes. Not sure why I can't seem to get rid of 'em.

Don't believe it will. It's a tight fit as is, and even super thin heat spreaders would likely obstruct the RAMs insertion. Moreover, I could be wrong but I've never seen laptop size DDR2 sticks with...
