    I purchased a MacBook on 02/29/08 from the Apple Store. I've read that the "new & improved" MacBooks have improved processors and larger hard drives among other things. I know that my MacBook falls under the specs of the "new & improved", however, I'm not sure if my MacBook has the new "Penryn" technology that I've been reading about as a part of the "new & improved". It does has the Intel Core 2 Duo processor...but, how can I find out about the Penryn?

    Thanks!

    Go to "About This Mac" and then "More Info"

    If it says:

    "L2 Cache (per processor): 3 MB"

    Then you have a Penryn. If it says 4MB then you have the previous generation.

    Thanks.

    First off, I am not a "he"...I am a "she"...and I thought that before the upgrade on the MacBooks that Apple offered a 2.4GHz that apparently didn't have the penryn technology which is why I was asking. I suppose I was mistaken about that...

    Thanks to all that were helpful and not condescending!

    Funny you should mention that - I'm counting down the days until my current cell phone contract expires so that I can hook up with the iPhone...
