MacBook RAM

I bought a MacBook in June of 08.

It was the "MACBOOK 13.3/2.4/WHT/CTO" Product Number: Z0FK.

It came with "2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB"

But when I bought it I also bought from Crucial 2x2GB sticks.

Before I started up my Macbook for the first time I removed the 2x1GB sticks and replaced them with the 2x2GB sticks.

Now almost 6 months later I am wanting to sell my old MacBook memory; the 2x1GB sticks.

I have some questions that I hope you guys can help me with.

Does this memory only work for the MacBook? Is it compatible with the iBook, PowerBook, MacBook Pro, the new MacBook's, or the new MacBook Pro's?

Thank you for your help.

It will work with some of the Mac mini's (Intel only), iMacs, and MacBook Pros; assuming they use 667 MHz RAM. (Only certain revisions of each of those models use 667 MHz RAM.)

So what about MacBook Pros, iBooks, PowerBooks, etc?

It's compatible with all Intel Macs up until the current revision of iMac, MacBook Pro and MacBook, and not compatible with the Mac Pro (any revision). Not compatible with any PPC (G3/G4/G5) Mac.

Just a small amplification:
The intel iMac early 2008 models (which as John Clay pointed out are still current) take 800 MHz memory, not these 667 MHz modules

The newly introduced Late 2008 MacBook, MacBook Pros take DDR3 RAM

The last rev Powerbook G4 (Oct 2005, 1.67 DL Superdrive/HD screen) takes DDR2-533 MHz SODIMMs, and the 1 GB DDR2-667 MHz modules may be compatible (It's worth a try but YMMV).

Other notes:
Any CoreDuo Intel Macs cannot take 2 GB modules. Has to be a Core2 to take the 2 GB memory SODIMMs.

And of course 1 GB DDR2-667 SODIMMs are usable in 1000's of PC laptops.

Wait, let me make sure i understand you. The 2-1GB modules won't work with any CoreDuo Mac's. Only Core2 Mac's only. Or is this just all computers period, PC or Mac?
