Guys I have been looking into this and can't figure it out. My buddy who works for Apple recently purchased a brand new MacBook Pro w/ the LED screen and Santa Rosa. I understand Santa Rosa but what I do not understand is does this machine truely have a 45 nanometer central processing unit (aka penryn) ? BTW this machine was purchased brand new a few days ago, it is the latest MBP w/ the 8600GT.

Negative. Current MacBook Pro and Santa Rosa use 'Merom' Core 2 Duo.

Penryn is due early 2008, and Santa Rosa spec will be revised to accommodate it.
