(* Rom version in this doc (Jan 24th post) is same as the MacBook version above. Version should be a "MBP71... (i.e. MBP71.0039.B0E). Apple Doc may be corrected by the time you read this.-Mike)

As of Jan 30th, the download page still hasn't had the rom prefix corrected, although the Apple doc listing EFI and SMC firmware updates for Intel-based Macs was revised on Jan 25th to add these 3 updates and it has the correct (MBP) version number.
(EFI/SMC Firmware Updates Article was updated again on Jan 30th to add links to the D/L pages for these updates, as the Jan 25th revision added them as text only.)
