So I have a late 2011 MBP 17' and a white late 2009 MB.


The MBP has 8GB (2x4GB) RAM on 1333MHz

the MB has 4GB (2x2GB) RAM on 1066MHz.


I am upgrading my MBP with 16GB RAM, with 1333MHz speed.

What I am considering is that I might put the RAM's from my MBP to my MB.


My concern is that might it be some problem with it if I put faster RAM than what it has now? Or only the RAM speed will be reduced to 1066 as it does in normal PC's? I just dont want to throw out 8GB of RAM..
