How do you check if a new MBP is a SR or the Penryon processors?

    The L2 cache. The new has 3MB on the 2.4Ghz and 6MB on the 2.5 and 2.6 processors. The SR had 4MB L2 cache (at least mine does; 2.2GHz).

    Since the new MBPs have the new keyboard layout, a quick way to visually check would be to see if the F3 and F4 keys are Exposé and Dashboard.

    On a SR MBP, they'd be mute and volume down.
