By entering your computer's serial number, this site will tell you where it was made, and other information.

Its not much, but its interesting to know. :D

where is the serial number on an ibook?

For all computers, click the "Apple" symbol in top left of menu bar, and select "About This Mac" then click the "More Info..." button. The serial number is displayed in the "Hardware overview" section of system profiler.

apple menu > about this mac > click on the "version" a couple of times.

:lol: cool disko! I had never known you could click on that as well! Either method works, but yours is quicker. :P

My serial number isnt there! know it is under the keyboard, but should I be concerned?

The serial number under the keyboard is for the keyboard ;)

Serial numbers are generally under or on the back of machines, except the eMac, which has them inside the CD/DVD flap on the front (to make finding it easy for schools/businesses that have many of them).

Hrrm, I think I stumped it :P

"We are sorry but we don't have any information on this model yet." :(

:lol: what was it? A LISA? :P or a G5 iMac! LMAO

I tried it with all four of my Macs, it had the specs for the iBook and Powerbook but I stumped it with the iMac G3 and Powermac G4 (Digital Audio).

I submitted the info and they've added it to the site, pretty cool.

yeah its cool! Kind of a "communal information repository."

I got it with the 'mystic' gigabit ethernet G4 (multi processor)

I'm still impressed though.

How the hell do they come up with 736?

No serial number is reported in System Profiler for my iMac 333. If I find the energy I might go looking for one on the physical case somewhere.

14th August 2004, 07:50 PM
Didn't have any specs at ALL on my machine (PowerPC G4, 450Mhz, 20Gb HD, DVD Rom, Zip, 128Mb 100Mhz Ram, Rage128Pro 16Mb AGP) so I sent them the lot.

Nice website..

I have a document somewhere from my training that shows you the break down of the serial and what certain fields mean in the serial. See if I can find it.
