If you would rather not provide your full serial number,
we also accept 3-digit or 4-digit model identifiers.
If your serial number is 11 digits (pre-2010), the model ID is the last 3 digits;
if it is 12 digits, it is the last 4 digits.
Please be aware that your full serial numbers are recorded only if we are not able to match it to a computer, for the sole purpose of adding its model ID to our database, after which it is deleted.
