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.
