Product number or machine type and model identification

Question

How to find a product number or machine type and model?

Answer

There are many ways!

 

The product number is 7 characters e.g. 4286-CTO. The first 4 numbers are the machine type, and the last 3 characters are the model.

 

1. Find the label:

2. Use System Information:

 

Go the the Windows System Information Accessory (Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information, or just Start then type System Information in the search/run box).

 

3. Read it from BIOS:

 

Press F1 when you see the Lenovo/ThinkPad logo during start to enter BIOS.

 

4. Use The ThinkVantage Toolbox:

 

Start>Control Panel>Lenovo's System Healh and Diagnostics. If it is not installed, get it from here:

5. Get it from the command line:

 

Open a Command Prompt (filename: CMD.EXE) and issue either of the following commands:     

 

For all info:

c:\windows\system32\wbem\wmic.exe csproduct list full

 

For just the product number:

c:\windows\system32\wbem\wmic.exe csproduct get name

 

For just the serial number:

c:\windows\system32\wbem\wmic.exe csproduct get identifyingnumber
