    Oh that's an easy one. It was made in China. Because they're all made in China (afaik).

    EDIT: Doh! I though you wrote "where," not "when."

    The serial number tells you the week. First 2 digits are the factory, 3rd digit is the year, 4th and 5th digits are the week.

    Its an App to check the health and information on MB/P batteries. It also tells you the age of your mac (in days), be it iMac G3 or MacBook Pro.

    My iMac is 567 days old :D
