    Is there any way to tell when your iMac was made from deciphering the serial number. I found a site (chipmunk) that will decode it. But is that safe entering your serial number into a website?
    Thanks

    In Lion under "About this mac---More info" It will give general build time.

    There also used to be a site called coconutID. It would give a more precise timeframe and place of manufacture.
