    So I am planning on going to the Apple store later today to buy myself the MacBook 1.83 GHz. I am sooo excited I can hardly contain myself! :D

    Anyway, since I just now pretty much decided against ordering a BTO machine online from Apple and having to wait 3 weeks or more, now that I am going to buy one in person, I wanna make SURE I get the latest revision possible... Someone told me the 3rd and 4th digits of the serial # on the box is what I need to look for. Is that right?

    What is the most recent production week I should be looking for?

    Many thanks!

    in the first five digits of the serial number, the last two are the production week. IE: 12345, 45 would be the week.

    i don't know exactly what week apple started correcting some of the earlier problems, but mine is a week 26 and is completely problem free, if that helps.
