How to identify your MacBook Air

Use this information to help you determine which MacBook Air model you have.

Identify your MacBook Air by serial number

On most computers with Mac OS X, you can find the serial number in the About This Mac window. Otherwise, see MacBook Air: How to find the serial number to learn where to find the serial number on the surface of your computer. When you have the serial number from your computer, there are multiple options to determine your specific model.

Identify your MacBook Air by model identifier, model number, or configuration.

Use these numbers to identify your Mac Book Air model in the table at the end of this article.

  • To find your model identifier in System Profiler:
    1. Choose About This Mac from the Apple () menu in the upper-left corner of your screen.
    2. Click More Info.
    3. Find the model identifier listed in the Hardware Overview under the Hardware section.
  • If you still have the retail box or receipt from your MacBook Air, you can find the model number or configuration details on either.
  • If you have a custom configuration the Model Number and Configuration in the table may not match. Please use the Model Identifier to confirm the model of MacBook Air for custom configurations.
