    Are the 2.2GHz MB's equivalent to 2.16GHz MB's I am seeing on the Apple store refurbished site? I'm just a little confused why there is a discrepency in the processor speed unless they are the same and just rounded to 2.2 just for naming purposes. Or they are in fact different?

    I don't see the 2.16Ghz ones anymore on there, but my guess is the 2.2 are SR and the 2.16 are not.

    The 2.16ghz machine runs at 2.16ghz, does not use an LED backlight, and uses the Napa chipset (I believe that's the name, max 3 gigs of RAM). The 2.2ghz model uses the Santa Rosa chipset with a max of 4 gigs of RAM.

    They're completely different machines, released at least 6 months apart.

    They could by stating which processor it has in it and giving a disclaimer that it is not the current rev of the MB

    Nope, they actually use the same old glossy screens as the previous revisions.

    It is the MBP's with 2.2/2.4 that have Santa Rosa (4GB MAX) and the LED screens.
    The MB's with 2.0/2.2 have Santa Rosa (4GB MAX) and not the LED lit screens.

    New CTO 2.6GHz CPU option on 15" 2.4 and the 17" model.

    I think stating that 2.2ghz and 2.16ghz is stating which processor it has in it.
