    I believe you are the later model. Since you have a Core 2 Duo (C2D) instead of the Core Duo (CD) you should be able to figure out your RAM needs. I say max the machine out. Later on down the line you'll agree it was worth the extra $$$.

    I am no expert, but I believe the second one is yours. The first one says its a Core Duo, and you have a core 2 duo, so it can't be the first one.

    don't quote me tho, wait for someone else to confirm.
