How to identify Mac mini models

Use the information below to help determine which Mac mini model you have.

By serial number

On most computers with Mac OS X, you can find the serial number in the About This Mac window. Otherwise, see Mac mini: How to locate the serial number to learn where to find the serial number on the bottom of your Mac mini.

Type the serial number into the Check Your Service and Support Coverage page. The resulting screen will show your model.

By marketing number on the box

If you still have the box for your Mac mini, you'll find a sticker on the box that lists the marketing model number. Match that number to one in the table below to find your Mac mini model. The two characters "xx" before the slash (/) vary by country.
