MacBook Pro 13 Inch, 2 Mac Mini's 1.66 & 1.83, 2- iMac Intel i3 iPhone 4 & iPad 2 32 gig.
I recently purchased a Mac Mini 1.66 that has a 1 gig stick in it. I came across a Mushkin PC2-5300 4 gig stick and I'm wondering if it will work. I understand that the max memory my Mac Mini will take is 2 gig, but would this 4 gig stick work? I have two of these 4 gig sticks that were about to be discarded as they came out of a MacBook Pro where the mother board fried. If I can't use them then I will just eBay them or if someone here needs them make me an offer. On the Mushkin web site they are on sale for $97.00 each.

Assuming that the memory will indeed fit on the Mini, as you said you will only be able to get up to 2GB of total memory, so only 1 GB or the 4GB will be usable..

You're better off selling these sticks and picking up a 1GB stick for the Mini..
