    How do you decipher the model identifier? For reference, a MacBook Pro 9,2. What is the purpose of the 9,2 (or any X,X notation) number? In addition, when I see Early, Mid, Late. Is that in reference to hardware tweaks/releases that happen throughout the year?

    I’m sure this was probably discuss before but I cannot find the answer during a search.

    The MBP 9,2 is a non Retina model. The 10,2 is Retina and did not replace the 9,2. The 9,2 was available up until October 2016.

    JohnDS and Dave I really appreciate both you and your quick responses.

    I might have confused everyone with my question. I was looking for general information on the purpose of the identifier and what does those number mean? I had referenced the MacBook Pro 9,2 as an example but followed up with what does 9,2 mean? Not the specs for the machine.
