    I am looking buying a used macbook pro. The serial number on the case is different than the serial number that shows in the about this mac. I am new to mac and did not know if the software serial number is always different.

    No they should be the same. However if the previous owner messed up their case and bought a used bottom on E-Bay, that would explain it.

    IMO not worth it ... I would look at a re-furb from Apple
