    It's an older model but I think that's a pretty good price.

    Although if you're getting it from craigslist, be careful. The last three people I emailed about their MBP's all seemed to live in the UK for one reason or another and need to ship it (I live in Denver).

    How old?

    Yeah the guy lives locally.

    I too have been receiving emails form people from the UK.

    Late 2006 to mid 2007 I think.

    Something seems wrong here...

    I think you're right. The 2.16Ghz 17" models were Core Duo, not Core 2 Duo. Revisions A and B.

    Not until Rev C did the 17" models come with the Core 2 Duo, but it ran at 2.33Ghz.


    Buyer, you should ask the seller for clarification. Is it a Core Duo model, or a Core 2 Duo MBP?

    With more details from the seller, that sounds possible--it could just be a 15/17 typographical error.
