    I studied that, but could not figure them out. I think there may be 6 Generations now with the Unibody being generation 5, but I am not sure

    Try this site:

    http://apple-history.com/

    I would guess the 2nd generation is when they started using the "Core 2 Duo" cpu's. The first gen was "Core Duo".

    I would consider mine a 2nd gen, it was the first 17" model that came with a C2D.

    that is correct.. the hard thing is finding out which is the 4th generation. Hopefully someone will do a system profile on a macbook pro 15 and tell me if they have it

    Not sure if this is correct but
    A1150 Generation 1
    A1211 Generation 2
    A1226 Generation 3
    A1260 Generation 4
    A1286 Generation 5?

    There were the 2.16GHz and 2.33GHz which were the first generation MBP

    Then there were the 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz MacBook Pro (2007) which were the second generation, Santa Rosa.

    Then the unibody came out (2.53GHz). This was 3rd generation.

    Now we have the i5 and i7 MacBook Pro, the 4th Generation.

    There were no 1.66GHz or 1.83GHz MacBook Pros. There was a 1.83GHz white MacBook which was the first intel MacBook. The MacBook Pro started at 2.16GHz. I stand corrected.

    Actually the first generation MacBook Pro base model had a 1.83Ghz Core Duo processor. It was also available in 2.0Ghz and 2.16Ghz as upgrades - all Core Duos.

    To the OP, I think generation 2 refers to the 2.16/2.33 Core 2 Duo MBPs. Gen 4 are the Penryns - 2.4/2.5Ghz Core 2 Duos, the last generation before the unibodies, which are generation 5.
