Macs are very fussy about using the exact memory modules. Having said that, some folks have reported they were able to use faster memory while others said it caused problems. You'll just have to try it in your machine to see if it works OK.

And the faster memory, if it is compatible, will only run at the 1067MHz rate so if you have to purchase it, additional cost may well be a waste of cash.
