A reader has a prototype of a 17-inch MacBook Pro

A reader, Rebel Tech, sent me photos of a MacBook Pro prototype. It’s a 17-inch model purchased for a few dozen dollars.

It features a red motherboard (a classic for prototypes) with an ES processor (pre-production from Intel), a prototype optical drive, and an EVT Wi-Fi card.
