I have a MacBook Pro (Late 2006) 17in. I am wondering if this memory upgrade is compatible with my computer.

    No. This memory upgrade is only compatible with MacBook Pro's that have a DDR3 memory module. The late 2006 MacBook Pro's have only DDR2 memory modules and the DDR3 memory modules are only compatible with slightly newer MacBook Pro models that are only compatible with the DDR3 modules. A late 2006 MacBook Pro will not allow the newer DDR3 memory modules. You must buy only the late 2006 MacBook Pro memory modules.

  • No, your computer can only handle DDR2 up to 3 GB total this is DDR3. Two different animals, go to [apple->store->mac accessories->memory] and find your model to find the appropriate ram.

    Your iMac comes with at least 2 gigabytes (GB) of Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) Dynamic Random Access memory (DRAM) installed as one 2 GB memory module. You can replace or install additional 2 GB or 4 GB memory modules for up to a maximum of
    8 GB. Memory modules must meet the following specifications:
