Micro Center has a new 15-inch MBP i7 500gb on sale for $1599. How can when it was manufactured?
You can find specs on all Apple products:
By visiting EveryMac.com
By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model.
the processor speed can help narrow it down, if its 2.0 its an early
Thanks. The micro center website shows a 2.2ghz i7 processor so I Guess that is a late 2011.
well thats where its still tricky
i believe the high end early was 2.2
as well as the low end late
the 2.0 would of been easier to determine because its not available in the late 2011 model
what is the graphics card in the specs
Not necessarily. I have an early 2011 15" MBP with the 2.2GHz i7. Follow what GGJstudios said above to be sure.
The difference in the early and late 2011 MBP 2.2 is how much Vram in the GPU card. Early was 1.0GB (that was the high end) and late is 500MB (that is the lower end). Both are great machines. In Geekbench scores the early 2011 high end scores higher then the 2011 low end. But you can get the early cheaper.
You should be able to see that under details/specifications.
Assuming it's not built to order, i think it's the late version. The early 2011 came with a 750 GB hard drive since it was the higher model.
Check out the refurbished store as well. They have the same model for 1529, one with a 750 GB HD for 1599.
Seconded on this theory, but we can't be sure until OP posts a full list of specs that the website gives him.
Here's the link to Microcenter's site. Looks like a late model.
Click the Specs tab for detailed description on the GPU
The model number is for a late 2011, and the 512MB (I'm assuming that's for the 6750 since the Intel HD 3000 will only have 384(MB) RAM) also seems to point to a low end Late 2011 model.
