So the 5,3 is the identifier? What is mine then? 8,something?

You could look for it:


Identify your Mac and Mac OS X version, visualised in a more elaborate image
Identify your Mac and Mac OS X version using this 25 second video tutorial (3MB, .mp4, H.264)

Btw, the machine was built in January 2010: http://appleserialnumberinfo.com/Desktop/index.php

Looking at the serial number, the first W8 shows the manufacture site, and the next numerical digit shows the year of manufacture – '0', so it's a 2010 model. The next two digits show the week of manufacture – '05', so it was built in the fifth week of that year.

So, your Mac was built in January 2010.
