    All three models use 200-pin DDR2 667 SODIMMs. You can verify here: www.datamem.com

    EDIT: The site also confirms they work with the Intel iMacs as well. Joy!

    DIY document on installing your own memory on a MacBook: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303721

    The memory should work fine; the Intel Mini, iMac, MB and MBP use the same type of memory. If you're uber-anal about making sure you have the right memory, use www.datamem.com to verify your needs or go to Newegg and use their configurator.

    Installing of the ram in a macbook is cake, took me about 5 minutes to do. You can find videos on youtube if you do a quick search.

    Frys also has a deal on 2x2gb sticks for $179, then a $30 rebate bring it to only $150.

    its pretty easy, you just need to be sure to use a jeweler's screwdriver, it can't be too long of a handle either.

    woohoo, got my ram. installation was easy, just gotta have a tiny screwdriver. when you put the ram in, be sure to push it in there snuggly

    outpost rules because they usually get stuff to me within 2 days on average, even with free ground shipping
