Default RAM Question!!!

I have just upgraded my RAM in the inspiron 9300, so i have some RAM to sit around the place. I know someone who has the inspiron 1300, is the RAM interchangeable in these two laptops?

If they both use the same type of ram, then it will work.

They both use DDR2 memory, so it should be interchangeable.
