    If you bought the latest 2.2, 2.4 or 2.6 GHz Macbook Pro, it is Santa Rosa. 2.33 or 2.16 or 2.0 are earlier models.

    As others have stated the SR MBPs have either a 2.2, 2.4, or the 2.6G CPU. Pre SR MBP (such as mine) will have either a 2.16 or 2.33G processor.

    Conrgats on your MBP purchase. You will enjoy it, and welcome to MR.:)

    Thanks for the feedback, folks. Mine is a 2.2Ghz :D.
    Other than the black spot on the screen, I would say that I'm very happy with my MBP.

    Going to bring it back to the apple retails this tomorrow to complain. Hope they'll change the display panel for me.

    Pros
    - better performance (Google for benchmark comparisons)
    - consumes less power

    Cons
    - a lil' bit more expensive?
