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

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.

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).

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.

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

I'm still impressed though.

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.

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.
