    Hello!

    I'm looking into selling my MacBook online for a newer model. There are many model numbers listed out there (MC240LL/A, MB881LL/A, etc.) How do I determine what model I have?

    Thank you for your help! :) :apple:

    On my macbook the model number is printed on the bottom up near the vent, note however the model number is different to the order number (those that you quoted above).

    There might be an easier way but if I have to look up an order number I search via the model number e.g. A1181 on everymac

    http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/?search_keywords=A1181

    Then scroll down to where the specs match. To find processor speed, Click the Apple logo and it will tell you the processor speed. Then you can find a match on the everymac page.

    For example my late 2007 Macbook with a 2.2GHz processor and model number A1181 has the order number MB062LL/B.

    I've only had to do this a couple of times so never bothered looking for an easier way. If you don't get what I have posted above feel free to post the specs and we will try and work it out.
