    For details on everything inside your Mac, go:

    The Apple icon in the top left corner -> About This Mac -> More Info.

    People seem to be mentioning model numbers around this forum - which I can't seem to find via the "About this Mac" option. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong? My apologies, I am new to the Apple world.

    Yes,
    First, you can see the actual model number of the display by opening terminal and entering in the following command:

    ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    Second, you can go to System Prefs > Display > Color > pick the profile you're on > Open Profile > and then see below ...
