For those of you that brought your 2011 MacBook Pro in for the Repair Extension Program for Video Issues, I am curious to know which logic board serial number you got back.

You can find this serial number by looking right above the RAM slot.

This is NOT the same serial number as the one from your About This Mac.

It would be interesting to know if somebody on MacRumors has my old logic board.

Maybe you should specify the 17 inch 2011 MBP before people go through the trouble to remove and replace the 10 screws for the lower case just to satisfy your curiosity.

It's not just for my curiosity. Maybe someone with a 15-inch 2011 MBP has similarity curiosity.

If that is what you mean then say it. That is not the message I got from your original post.
So how many people do you think have a record of their logic board serial number?

What do you mean? You just have to look at it.

Is this a serious question?
What do you mean? Do you mean the people with a repaired 17" 2011 MBP that can open their MBP to get the serial number for you?
or
Do you mean the people that had a 15" 2011 MBP with a failed dGPU that can open their repaired MBP to see the serial number for the logic board that has already been replaced? Oh wait, that logic is already gone?

How would the people with a 15" 2011 MBP know if their old logic board is in someone else's repaired 15" 2011 MBP unless they opened the MBP and recorded the number before they sent it in for repair?
I do not think many people do that. I have not seen any other person with a 15" 2011 MBP start a thread about this. Just you. I'm waiting for the flood of responses.

The logic board serial number is right above the memory slot.

The laptop serial number can be found by: Apple logo > about this mac

I am not sure how else to explain this.
