    Hi guys,
    I am using a Macbook Core Duo 2.0Ghz and under additional information it says the Age of your Mac: 24,441 Months. Was Steve Jobs even alive when I "bought" my Macbook?

    How can I get an accurate reading, I wonder if it has anything to do with reading your Mac's serial number because I got my logic board replaced four months ago and as a result the serial number becomes "SystemSeumb."

    I think you're out of luck. CoconutBattery calculates the age of your Mac from its serial number. That serial number was wiped out in the software when your logic board was replaced. There might be a system file buried deep inside a folder somewhere that you can modify using the original serial number (that can usually be found in the battery bay), but I'm not so sure poking around in there is the best idea.

    Damn! I don't know why they cant put the existing serial number back when they replace the logic board. Kind of silly.
