    I was looking through a system profiler file, and I found some references to various pieces of hardware, some of which certainly do exist, but some of which don't ... can we sort out which is which?

    MacBookPro5,1 (Late 2008 MBP)
    MacBookAir2,1 (Rev. B MBA)
    MacBook5,2
    iMac9,1
    MacMini3,1
    MacBookPro5,2
    iMac10,1

    They appeared in a strange section of the system profiler output with a line called:

    +-o Root <class IORegistryEntry, retain 12>

    What's a MB 5,2; MBP 5,2; and an iMac10,1? Interesting that the iMac has the 9,1 and the 10,1 listed here already, since neither appear to exist.

    I fail to see the surprise here. I mean, there will likely be further revisions of both iMacs and MacBooks in the future. It's not exactly a world-changing revelation.

    A few new model numbers

    Somebody please correct me if I'm mistaken anywhere. Let's try to sort things out.

    What's up with the 2's, anyway? Doesn't a second number change mean a more significant change than a first number change? But the notebooks just had a big update.
