Wondering what your laptop model number is? Here are a couple of simple and easy-to-follow ways to check the laptop model in Windows 10.
Every laptop or a pre-built desktop computer has a model number. When I say “Model Number,” I’m not talking about a specific brand or a specific line of a brand. Depending on the laptop configuration and product line, the model number will be different.
For example, I’m using an Asus VivoBook laptop. However, there are a lot of configurations in the VivoBook lineup. For example, there are Intel VivoBook laptops and AMD VivoBook laptops; there are touch-enabled laptops and non-touchscreen laptops, etc. To differentiate between different configurations, Asus assigns model numbers to each specific configuration in the VivoBook lineup.
This quick and straightforward guide will show you two methods to check and find the laptop model. Follow the one you like.
Why do you need to know the laptop model number?
A vast majority of users never need to know the laptop model number. However, there will be situations where you need to know the laptop model number. For example, you need to know the laptop model number to find the compatible memory module. The same is true for other hardware components like the SSD, keyboard, screen, mouse pad, and more. In addition to all this, if you are trying to contact a support person or RMA your laptop, knowing the laptop model number is helpful.
Look under the laptop to find model number
The laptop model number is found on the sticker under the laptop itself.
Every laptop has a sticker under it that contains a lot of information like the branding, compliance information, Windows product key, etc. On the same sticker, you will find the laptop model number. Typically, you will see the model number right next to the “Model” heading, or it will accompany the laptop product line’s name.
Take a look at the below image for a quick reference. Remember that each manufacturer designs their sticker a bit differently. So, you might have to study the sticker(s) a bit closer to find the laptop model.
