    Hello,

    I found someone who is willing to sell his mbp to me, the only problem is that I don't know if it is a core dou or a core 2 duo.

    The cpu has a 2,16 Ghz speed and the system was purchased on the 28th of februari last year.

    Regards Stijn

    It could be either. There were 2.16GHz Core Duos as well as Core 2 Duos. If he purchased it new from Apple in February '07 it is most likely a Late 2006 MBP and thus indeed a Core 2 Duo but if you want to be absolutely sure get him to tell you the serial number and pop it in to this page on the right hand side (second box down):

    Ask him to let you see the "About this Mac" window. Problem solved!

    LOL I didn't even think of that and here I was about to tell him to get the serial number by clicking on "More Info..." from the very same window where it will clearly say what processor it is running. :eek:

    Based on the purchase date, it should definitely be a C2D. Also, if it has FW800 it's a C2D.
