How to Check What MacBook Do I Have?

by Sebastian Kończak 2 Comments

Finding your MacBook model name could be crucial for many things, for example ordering our MacBook keyboard decals or MacBook skins. So how to check it? There are two ways...

1. Check MacBook model name in Mac OS

1. Go to system bar on top of the screen and click on . From the menu choose About This Mac.

2. In the window that showed up you can find your Mac model, it will start with MacBook. I have iMac so in my case it says iMac (27-inch, Late 2013). Use name shown here and type it into Model name field when adding our decal to the cart.

3. That's all :-)

2. Check MacBook model name on the laptop itself

Turn your Mac upside down and locate small captions at the top. Look for model number starting with A. Review the table below to match model number to plain-english model name:

 MacBook model number MacBook model name
MacBook Air 11" (late 2010 - mid 2011)

How many hours a day do you spend in front of your laptop? I bet it's quite much. And we all take them to cafes, office, classes so it's kinda easy to get those awful scratches and oily stains which are neither cool nor easy to clean. After a while we catch ourselves staring at total, sticky and dusty, disaster with an Apple logo in front. So how do I protect my Mac with a style?
