No. They aren't interchangable.

If they can accept both than yes, but they dont go in the same slots as they are physically incompatible. Also you cannot run both at the same time

^^ They will have physical slots for both, but you can only use one set at any one time.

1. You DO NOT need DDR3 for a laptop. (Exception begin the upcoming mobile CPUs based on Nehalem. )

2. Give us a specific model. Then we can tell you more about it.
