find MacBook Pro 15 model number

In another similar question:

MacBook Pro model 15"

the answer was look on the case. But my case is too worn. Inside the battery case the serial number is clear W88050D2XAG but when i run it thru Apple's model number finder

All it says is:

MacBook Pro (15-inch 2.4/2.2GHz)

Which is not the neat, simple A### that all repair instructions reference.

Further investigation:



This system profiler does not have the A### either!

How do i get the A###?

Why all this confusion between websites,cases, system profilers?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Does not answer either question.

"How do i get the A###?

"Why all this confusion between websites, cases, system profilers?" Why does Apple make it so ambiguous?

Incidentally Mayer, the next person who has a similar problem with a different Apple would gain little from your answer, in my respectful opinion.


The model number, A####, is printed on the bottom of all Apple laptops. There is a picture here.


Well excussse me.
