If you ever need to call Apple for support, you may need to know your Mac’s serial number. There are a couple of ways to find it. The first, is to shut down your computer and look for it underneath the battery.
There is an easier way however although it is hidden, and not at all obvious to find. Click and then choose About this Mac from the Apple menu. If you click on the OS X version, you will be able to cycle through three bits of information: Version, Build Number and finally your computer’s serial number.
It wouldn’t hurt to have this written down somewhere as well in case you ever reach the unfortunate situation where your computer will not boot up.
