Like you mentioned...some of the early i7 MacBook Pro's had 2 cores. Early 2011 i7 MacBook Pro's (and newer) have 4 cores.

I'm pretty sure all 13" MacBook Pro's with an i7 only have two cores (even the latest models).

Of course once you have specific model/models you are interested in buying...it's always a great idea to verify its specs before buying.
