How To Find Model Name And Serial Number Of Your MacBook

MacBook is a quite famous computer that is manufactured by Apple. Macs usually last for a long time. As a matter of fact, they function long enough for the Mac owners that sometimes they forget what model of Mac are they actually using on daily basis. The MacBooks are identified by their serial number and the model number. Knowing the precise number and model of the Mac is essential especially when you are planning to upgrade not only the major OS updates and software but also the hardware. It is after all very likely that, when you upgrade from the Snow Leopard to the Lion, for instance, you would discover that you need to add more of the memory or otherwise you would have to upgrade the hardware as well. Knowing about the serial and the model numbers is also important if you are ordering for the replacement parts. Generally you can find out this information by clicking the symbol of Apple in the left top corner of screen and then selecting the option of ‘About this Mac’. However, if the battery is completely drained or the computer is off, this information may also be found on exterior of your computer. Let’s learn how you can find out the exact model and serial number for different models of the MacBooks:
