Which MacBook do I have?

I just got a second hand MacBook from my cousin. I think I need to replace my keyboard... because a few keys are dead on it (I asked a few friends also and they said they think its also the keyboard, and not the motherboard. The Mac works perfectly except for the 4 keys that don't work)

So how do I find out what Mac model I have? I know its 13 inches and nothing more.

Model A1181? or A1278? or A1342?

If all you care about is what model it is, go through the following list:

Is it white or aluminum? If aluminum, you have A1278.

If white, does it have a trackpad button along with the trackpad, or does the entire trackpad physically click as the trackpad button? If it has a trackpad button, it is A1181.

If the entire trackpad clicks as the trackpad button, it is A1342.

Goto system profiler. Print All info, go to Apple menu -> About This Mac, write it and figure out which Macbook do you have.

Take the battery out and look on the side wall of the battery compartment.
