Question about Mac Memory

I just found some spare ddr2 lying about (as you do) and want to us it in my mac book, The only problem is that the memory installed is 667 ddr 2 and this stuff is 533.

Will the new stuff work and will it make that much of an impact running it at a slower speed

It will most likely clock your 667 ram down to 533. I cant imagine you'll see much difference unless you are gaming on or benching you mac So the extra mem will probably be more beneficial.

It is a SODIMM correct? Just making sure that you know that laptops don't use regular size DIMM's.
