    How does one determine if the processor is Penryn on a MBP?

    I'm specifically wondering if every 2.6 GHz early 08 MBP is going to be a Penryn processor - Apple doesn't seem to clearly denote this on their clearance or refurb sale pages? What about the 2.5 GHz models?

    Also - is Penryn definitely the best option available for these MBPs? Are the current unibody MBPs using Penryn?

    From the MR Guides:
    Everything from this revision (early 2008) will be penryn based.

    The new Macbook Pros (rev F) also utilize the same Processor type (penryn) but not the same chipset (nvidia), adding DDR3 and the dual gpu (but not hybridsli) architecture.
