    You can find specs on all Apple products:

    Yeah thanks but none of those seem to work. This was a custom ordered mac. Trying to find out which processor it has.

    There are only 3 possibilities (found in the first link I posted):
    • 2.53 GHz Intel "Core i5" I5-540M (Arrandale).
    • 2.66 GHz Intel "Core i7" I7-620M (Arrandale).
    • 2.8 GHz Intel "Core i7" I7-640M (Arrandale).
    Look in System Profiler > Hardware > Processor Speed: to find out which you have.

    Yeah, I was hoping somebody had access to the apple system that could tell me for sure.

    If you follow the instructions I gave you, you will know for sure.

    No one but you can find out for sure. You need to check in About This Mac on the computer itself, or look on the label inside the battery bay.

    Hahah yes of course. Comp is dead so I can't turn it on to check the specs.

    Did you check the label, as Mal suggested?

    They only put labels under the battery on the late 2008 split back models

    The Logic Board label (on the RAM slots) should contain that information, then.
