    Where can I find the mac address on a new iMac. Doesn't show up in "About this Mac".

    Thanks.

    For a start it's on a sticker on the side of the box...

    Go to System Preferences:Network. Then select the device you want (i.e. Ethernet or Aiport). Then, click on the "Advanced" button in the lower right corner. Finally click on the "Ethernet" tab on the upper right of the window. The "Ethernet ID" displayed is the same as your MAC address.

    Another way is to click on "About this Mac" under the Apple menu, then click the "More Info" button. In the left column, click on "Locations" under the Network heading. Your MAC address is listed under Ethernet.
