Can you have any control over the serial number...

... of the machine you're buying? I.e. if you know that some series showed some glitches or if you want a Samsung screen and not an LG one, can you somehow specify it to your seller? Silly probably, but I was just wondering. :P

No, you can not. Don't be difficult.

the serial is stated on the box, so if you shop in an Apple reseller shop, then you could check the serial before making the purchase.

but I suppose you are shopping online, then you can just ask.
