    I just received my replacement rev A refurb and coconut battery says it's 122 months old!!! Where does it retrieve that info from?

    How old is YOUR MBA according to coconut battery? (or any other application)

    Serial Number

    They are probably just decoding your Mac serial number incorrectly. If you enter your serial number at this web site they will give you more info. My MBA refurb was built in Aug. 08 according to that site.

    Don't get too excited. Apple generates new serial numbers for some of their refurbs. I'm not sure what the criteria is. I'd guess that the old #'s are for machines that were returned to the store in good working order, while the new #'s may have had some work done.

    Yeah, I figured. Why would they still be building old MBAs anyways? Plus, don't they use new cases for the refurbs? Can we even really tell when it was made since they'll put parts together like battery (used or new), new case, and inside parts of the true refurbs???

    Just curious

    Can you guys enter your serial numbers here : https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do

    Let us know if it says it is a refurb or not. I entered mine, and it does not say refurbished anywhere. In a previous thread, they said it should show up there as refurbished.

    If you go to the coconutBattery preferences, theres an option to manually enter your mac's serial number.
