    I am trying to find replacement parts for my MBP, as it needs a new DC-in board and screen. I have been looking on eBay, but I'm quite confused with some of the model numbers. Could someone please explain the difference/correlation between model numbers like A1150 and MA895LL? I am quite confused as to what is what. Here are my MBP specs if anyone can help:

    15.4" Matte Screen
    2.33Ghz Core 2 Duo processor
    2Gb RAM
    Nvidia 8600M GT (unknown MB, don't have a working screen right now :))

    Basically, if someone could help me figure out what DC-in board I'll need and what screen, that'd be fantastic. If not, helping me figure out what model numbers to look for would be greatly appreciated, and I'll go from there.

    Your MBP appears to be the Santa Rosa (SR) chipset from 2007 if that helps any.

    Thanks. I'll see if that digs anything in Google.

    Wrong. It's not Santa Rosa, It's Merom based on the 945 chipset. The 2.2 and 2.4 were the first SR MacBook Pro's.

    My bad. I just took a guess because it was less than 2.4GHz, so I knew it was before 2008, but I thought that the generation before Santa Rosa was only Core Duo.
