    Specs:
    Macbook 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4Gb RAM
    Intel Core Duo processor
    I take it that the Intel Core Duo processor is different from the Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

    If I'm not buying direct from apple, is there anyway to tell the difference between the 2 without actually having the mac in front of me?

    Cheers

    You can tell my the processor speed. I was going to order a new macbook pro intel core duo, I ended up waiting 4 days and when I went to order, I found out the released the core 2 duos... thank god I wanted those 4 days. I had no clue they were updating them. I was worried that I might get a core duo and not a core 2 duo. It says on the outside of the box core 2 duo.. it has the logo.

    I must say... I LOVE THIS MACBOOK PRO... I got the ultimate machine, maxed out the specs... I couldnt imagine anything nicer.

    I think he meant how could he tell just by looking at the laptop. And if not, I still don't think you could tell just by using the computer. There'd be no way to tell you were on a Core 2 Duo vs. a Core Duo by simply running it.

    To answer your question, yes, you can tell. Go to the blue apple up top left and click "About this Mac" and it will bring up a window telling you what version OS you're running, RAM amount, and Processor type. Here is an example:

    If you're buying this online then I suggest having him send you a screen cap of your name next to the OS X About this Mac bubble. I mean, he could still screw you by doing just that on an actual Core 2 Duo, but ****, at least it puts him in a position where he has to actively lie. Also, you'll have the correspondence between the two of you asking him to prove to you that it is a Core 2 Duo, which would be valid evidence if he does indeed screw you over and you need to contact authorities.

    2) A PC with a bunch of stuff in it.

    He won't open the box as he wants to sell it brand new. Which is fair enough if you ask me. It is going through paypal so if he does outright lie to me then that would be pretty substantial ground to get my money back.

    It does say Core 2 Duo on the box, ask him for a picture of the box with your name written on a piece of paper or something. And ask for the serial number off that box, so you know he is actually sending you the proper one and you'll be able to tell without opening. I've attached a picture that which is what you should expect from him.

    if your looking at the computer while its open, the core2duo MBP's do not have a status light visible to the right of the isight camera. The new models have the light built in under the case.

    Who is this loser? Must be unhappy with the PC world if he wants to spend time here. Bashing Apple is kids stuff. Bring on something more credible than Apple sucks. You suck. Does that mean anything? Nope.

    Bring something that matters, that counts, that's adult and mature. Otherise, stay in your PC world and leave us alone.
