    to figure out your model.

    No official info on graphics card problem exist, but some thinks it's affected.

    Santa rosa is motherboard chipset can do 4gb of ram and run Snow Leopard at 64bit = good.
    bad = first generation Santa Rosa. I have problems with sleep sometimes.

    Penryn is name for intel processor family. Not sure whether this one is that processor family.
    google for more info: intel Penryn wiki
