At best you will slow your brand-new machine down; at worst you may make it unstable or unbootable. Use the right RAM for your machine.15" '08 UMBP 2.4GHz/4G/500G XT; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; iPhone 3G, iTouch 32G, Mac OS X (10.6.6), scanners, projector, tablet, laser and photo printers, Pentax K-7, Olympus E-10

Only used it for a couple of days like that though before the faster RAM arrived.
They were Crucial chips.2011 MBP i7 QC, 256Gb SATA6 SSD, 750Gb SATA, 8Gb, MBA 11.6" 128Gb/4Gb, 2010 Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.6), Loads of Windows PCs, HP Servers etc.

I know this was sometime ago, but I'm in the same boat as the original poster. I have 8GB of 1066 RAM I want to put into an Early 2011 MBP 13'' that supports the faster 1333Mhz Ram. When you had the slower memory in did you notice a slow down?
