    Does anyone happen to know the actual processor model number in the 2.26 MBP? Is it the P8400?

    Thanks.

    Yup, it's P8400. EveryMac has quite accurate specs for all Macs, check it out!

    You can find complete specifications for all Apple products with MacTracker.

    Edit: Interesting note: MacTracker and EveryMac disagree on this particular processor, unless I'm reading it wrong. EveryMac says it's the P8400, but MacTracker shows the P7550. ???

    P7550 for me (bought in August 2009, Canadian Apple Store)

    but in Macs, P8400 and P7550 are the sames processors

    p7550 is the OEM name for P8400

    Intel shows slightly different specs between the P8400 (released Q3/08) and the P7550 (released Q3/09). I'm not sure that the differences are important, but they're clearly different.

    yes you have a point

    but on the link you post, the P7550 is't suppose to have virtualisation (VMX).

    On mine it support virtualisation ...

    "sysctl machdep.cpu.features" in terminal shows that VMX in enabled confirms with virtualbox

    but the P7550 still have some differences with the P8400

    anyone know if there is a real difference in terms of performance between those 2 processors ??

    That's not accurate. On the link I posted, for the P7550 under Intel® Virtualization Technology, it says "See SPEC Details", which says:
    ....which the MBP does, so it's enabled.

    Yes I know that the entire system (software and hardware) need to support virtualisation to use it ...

    but why there is a red cross on this table (VT-x) ??
