    Oh my friend went to USA, so I ordered a MBP from amazon because they had a great deal and I got the Penryn 2.4Ghz for $1680 after rebates. I was really worried about getting one with some problems...But it's amazing!! Beautiful screen!! I am on it now and it is so so so sexy :eek: Time to get some apps on it :p

    I love it :p

    I Dont Think thats The Penryn model may be the earlier Santa Rosa Model, still a good deal though and you should enjoy it nonetheless.

    Amazon is odd with their pricing. This could be a Penryn because they had them down to $1718 at one point over the weekend with discounts.

    If it's the specs you quote in your signature then that's a Merom/Santa Rosa MacBook Pro, not a Penryn/Santa Rosa.

    Oh, good point, missed that. . .

    In that case, he paid $30 too much then.

    There is actually a way to get the Amazon 2.4 Penryn for less than $1680. It's currently $1918 right now, and if you use the "gold box trick" posted on slickdeals.net, you can get an additional 5% off. Basically this is just tricking Amazon into putting the computer into your "quick picks list", where everything is 5% off. This brings it down to $1822. There's a $150 rebate on top of that, dropping the price to $1672 with no tax.

    I'm typing on my $1672 Penryn MBP right now :)

    Amazon had the super cheap one with a 160gb HD...But it's Penryn, I checked.

    That's weird.
    At the Apple site they start off at 200 GBs.

    What size are the 7200rpm units? Maybe that is the reason for 160gb size.

    I just ordered the last revision model.....got tired of waiting.

    160GB HDDs were available only in the Merom/Santa Rosa machines. The current machines are stock with 200GB or 250GB with options for a 7200rpm 200GB or 4200rpm 300GB.

    Open up System Profiler and take a screenshot of the Hardware overview. The amount of L2 cache will indicate the processor.

    No Penryn/Santa Rosa MacBook Pros come with a 160GB hard drive, nor is it an option.

    Check "About This Mac->More Info..." to see how much L2 cache you have
