    Hi guys,

    Am in HongKong and got my new Al macbook from a re-seller here (as there are no apple stores)...
    Couple of days after my purchase i noticed 2 dead pixels on the screen....

    I called the re-seller demandin a replacement, but it seems it would take 2 weeks for him to get me a new one...But am leavin hongkong the comin week...

    So i called Apple n asked for replacement statin the defect n my situation, the technician said that, replacement is not possible for 2 dead pixels, n promised that i cud get my screen alone replaced frm an apple authorised service center...

    So i met the service center guy, n he agreed to replace the screen alone within 2 days....

    Acutually, i don trust that service center guy (he seems really fishy :mad:), i feel that, in the disguise of replacin the screen, he may stealthily replace the new RAM, superdrive, HDD (i don have any data in it), with the old ones...also, i doubt whether he wud really replace the screen with a genuine apple certified LED backlit....

    So before i send it for repair, i want to profile my hardware in the macbook n save the hardware specifications like each of their serial number and stuff like that, so that when i get back the macbook after replacin the screen i can re-check whether he has done any mischief....

    So Could u guys help me with this please???

    Run System Profiler from your Utilities folder. It will provide information on the internals of your MB.

    Look at the system profiler. Copy/paste. That's it.

    Other than that, click on the apple in the top left corner, click "about this mac" and then click twice on the version number – you will see the serial there.
