Hey guys,

I'm wondering if there's any chance of me using 2 Gb's of 1067mhz DD3 RAM in my Macbook that came out late 2006?

Unless you can get the modules for free :D I wouldn't waste my time trying. They may or may not work. In any event, they would slow down to the memory bus speed of your machine anyway.

Regards.

Always use the proper RAM and it will avoid kernel panics and if I am not mistaken it has
a 667 FSB so anything beyond that will not enhance the speed and possibly lock up.

Well I was contemplating purchasing an MB Pro from my friend and swapped their RAMs so it should be compatible? The MB Pro has 2Gb but my current MB has 4GB (reduced to 3GB).

DDR3 will not fit in your DDR2 machine.

The two types of memory are not cross compatible.
DDR2 is 200 pin and DDR3 is 204 pin.
