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 & 11.
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 like Dell, HP, etc., or a specific line of a brand like Dell’s XPS, Inspiron, Vostro, etc. The model number will be different depending on the laptop configuration and product line.
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, AMD VivoBook laptops, touch-enabled laptops, non-touchscreen laptops, etc. Asus assigns model numbers to each specific configuration in the VivoBook lineup to differentiate between different configurations.
This quick and straightforward guide will show you two methods to check and find the laptop model in Windows 10 and 11 operating systems. Follow the method 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 a compatible memory module. The same is true for other hardware components like the SSD, keyboard, screen, mouse pad, etc. You also need the know the laptop model number or name to download compatible Windows drivers.
In addition to all this, if you are trying to contact a support person or RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) your laptop, knowing the laptop model number is helpful.
Look under the laptop to find the model number
You can see the laptop model number or name on a stick underside of the laptop.
Every laptop has one or more stickers under it that contain 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 highlighted part of the below image for 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.
