The first Unibody.

Pretty solid machines. Limited to El Capitan. 8 GB ram max, 4 standard. Weak point: SATA cable.

Also looking at this thread wiytout hijackong it side is there a specific ac power brick MagSafe adaptor that I can use with these?

I need to get the correct part / item as there’s a newer MagSafe that doesn’t fit this model.

Is there a specific one I can look for this model in particular? As this MacBook Pro doesn’t come with one

Thanks

The Magsafe PSU for older MBP's should still be easy enough to find, lots of Mac repair/spares places around the internet who supply new and used parts.

Thanks Sam.
Would this be the 85w MagSafe brick, 60w or 45w?

I don’t want to get the wrong one

I think it's the 85W.
This might help you confirm.

Using a bigger PSU than necessary won't harm the computer so unless the 85 watt is significantly more expensive I'd go for it.
