    It's this model:

    So it's a Santa Rosa not a Penryn.

    (Amazing info can found by just googling).

    Hi Tommy,

    The MacBook Pro (model A1226), introduced by Apple in June 2007, comes with the Merom processor.

    Kryten how many times must you post the same thing? I get the point. However, I do believe it's a Santa Rosa.

    -Kryten our sources differ. However, it is a Santa Rosa. I have one.

    I believe "Santa Rosa" is an Apple model codename, whereas "Merom" and Penryb" are Intel processor names. Common usage seems to be to use the Apple name "Santa Rosa" for the Late 2007, but for some reason the late 2008s get called by the Intel name.

    So you're both right.

    There was a glitch in the Matrix sig. Every time I hit the 'Post Message' button I was taken to a page saying 'Sorry the forums are not currently available, we will be back soon'.

    So, I just kept hitting the 'Post Message' button again and again in the hope that it would get through not realising that my reply had already been posted but I could not see it.

    I'm sure the Hosts are looking into it.

    Hi sig,

    I also have one and I call it a Santa Rosa, too. If I look farther down in the everymac.com link you posted for the Santa Rosa, the chart area shows under "processor type":

    The Intel "Core 2 Duo" (T7500) 65 nm "Merom" processor includes two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip.


    So SR is an Apple computer codename and Merom is an Intel processor name. I don't know why people started calling their early 2008 (machineID: macbookpro4,1) after the Intel name "Penryn" but it all seems something that users have come up with, not Apple.

    I made a mistake in my other post--the "late 2008" should say "early 2008."

    Actually, "Santa Rosa" is an Intel name. There's really no such thing as a "Santa Rosa" in a Mac, since that code name technically applies to an Intel platform (others have included Napa and Sonoma) - comprising a processor, a chipset, and a wireless card. Of those, Apple only uses Intel's processors. So, it's a misnomer that's found it's way into common usage on these boards and elsewhere. The Santa Rosa platform used a Merom processor; the Santa Rosa Refresh platform actually used a Penryn processor (so, I suppose people used 'penryn' since 'santa rosa refresh' sounds too much like the original, or just plain silly, or something). The next platform from Intel (after the Santa Rosa Refresh) was Montevina, and also used the Penryn processor. The more recent Capella platform uses the Nehalem processor. And the partridge uses a pear tree. It's all in a name.

    Btw, Sybil (or Kryten, or whoever you really are today), thanks for the preview pics in the WC - my wife tells me I have a package at home...and so far has restrained herself from asking what new toy I ordered... Once I put it on, do I get to be rightererererererererererer??
