    Hi all!

    How can i find out when i first turned my mac on, or bought it? I know i turned it on the day i got it. Like, I want to know when i first used it/turned on, to work out exactly how long i've had it.

    Many thanks! :)

    If you just want to find out when you bought it, enter your serial number into Apple's support page on AppleCare. Unless you've never shut down, I'm not sure of a way to determine when it was first turned on.

    Just tried that! Although it is a day behind. Thankfully i updated my twitter when i bought it, so i know the date.

    Thanks for your help!
