    Hi, Apple is going to replace the bottom case of my MacBook Pro. They said that the new case will not have a serial number. I guess if I try to sell the laptop to a store later, they may ask and reduce the selling value of the computer. Besides that, do I have to care about a lack of serial number at the bottom of the case? Why can't apple just engrave the serial number to the replacement case the way they do to the new iPod?

    duhh its cause the engraving is done when the ipods are assembled.

    why did they need to replace the botton case anyway?

    it doesnt matter cause u can view the serial number on the mac itself. go to "about mac" at the top

    If you sell it - just push them to look at the serial through "About this Mac" tab.

    The serial number is supposed to be written in permanent marker on the inside of the new case, although I can't vouch for them always actually doing it. Engraving isn't something that's done in store, it's only done in Apple's factories.
