Got my hands on a Mid-2010 MacBook Pro 13, rescued from the ol' corporate discard pile.
Core 2 Duo P8600 (2.4GHz), 4GB of RAM, 250GB 5400rpm spinner, 8x Superdrive.
Not a bad machine per-se - as it contains nVidia's Geforce 320M/MCP89 chipset, which is a very good integrated chipset. It's the only Core 2 Mobile chipset that will allow 8GB DDR3 DIMMs per socket, yielding 16GB of RAM total (must be PC8500/1066MHz RAM, though. Any higher timing and the machine will simply not work). The integrated graphics performance were arguably better than the Intel HD3000 (Sandy)/HD4000 (Ivy) integrated GPUs and match the Geforce 8600 Go on normal usage, which is good for older games like Quake 4, Battlefield 2142, NHL 2002 and Star Wars Battlefront (the 2004 release). Man, I really miss old-school Apple and their repairability. Especially when compared to the current generation MBP13 sitting at my desk in the office.
So, what to do? Swap out the 4GB, tried some other pieces of RAM sitting at the old homestead (the G.Skill Ripjaw is PC3L-12800 if I remember correctly, and it refused to run on the machine at all), eventually found a pair of 8GB PC3-8500, popped in a Samsung Qvo 960 1TB SSD and reinstalled MacOS 10.13 (last version to have full CUDA support and works with non-metal compliant GPUs). The machine is held back by the Core 2 Duo/Penryn CPU, though. I kinda wished that nVidia didn't exit the chipset business and actually released the MCP99 for the Nehalem based mobiles.
Purchased and ran the machine off a 60w rated USB-C PD to Magsafe L-Tip adapter (because the Apple originals are such a piece of fragile crap, plus my power bricks/power banks are all USB-C PD nowadays). Works well enough.
Long term plans? Use it as an Era 6 vintage gaming machine - probably going to install a Bootcamp environment for Windows XP and Windows 7 (or 10), just to run some DX9 and 10/11 stuff on the hardware respectively.
On other news, finished Rowan's Airpower: Battle in the skies, working on a Dosbox/bare-metal install/config guide (SVGA support was a massive pain)/game review.
