    I've searched and I've been unable to come up with an answer to my question.

    I've recently ordered a Refurbished 15" rMBP 2.3/8gb/256gb. It came in this morning and it has the Samsung panel, and actually has 16gb of ram, which is a killer bonus. The battery has 11 cycles on it, and I'm curious how old it actually is. I've tried the serial number decoder here:, but it doesn't show production date information and a lot of the stuff is blank. Is this because it's a refurb? Is there some other way to look up the information?

    I just tried that and it indicated 5 weeks as the age. Where is everyone else getting all the detailed information from in the sticky thread?

    Yeah, refurb units get a new serial number after the reconditioning process. Not sure how you would look up the original production info, though.
