A Mac’s “Model Identifier” tells more about your Mac than any other single piece of information. Whether you are trying to confirm that the latest SSD or memory upgrade you’ve had your eye on is compatible with your Mac or you’re trying to find a particular specification such as screen size or maximum memory, with your Model ID in hand, you’ll be armed with the information needed.
Most items available from OWC conveniently include a compatibility grid below the item description, so if you know your Mac’s Model ID, you can be confident that you are getting the right item for you.
You may even notice that we include a link for finding a Mac’s Model ID at the top of that grid, which brings up this helpful image without ever leaving the page:
Apple Menu > About This Mac > More Info > (System Report) > Hardware
If your machine does not boot, you can also find the Model ID using the serial number with another site tool on EveryMac. You can find your serial number on the back (Mac Pro) or bottom (most other models) of the exterior of your machine. Some older Macs will have this inside an access panel or battery bay. More details on location are available from Apple or EveryMac.
If you are unsure where to look for the best upgrades for your Mac, assistance from an OWC customer service representative is only a call or click away. With your Mac’s Model ID, you can help us help you as quickly as possible. So be sure to keep the Model ID handy and refer to it whenever you need to know something about your machine!
