This is my first time getting into a MAC system. I'm planning to buy a secondhand Macbook Pro 2010 model. While browsing the net I found out that you can change the System information a Mac. My question is "How would I know If I'm buying the real specs of a Macbook Pro, that is stated at the About this Mac?" Give me a head start before I get my self into trouble. Thank you and have blessed day.

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Get the serial number and paste into this link which will tell you week and year of manufacture:-


Apple Serial Number Info // Decode your Mac's serial number!

Also should be model A1286 or thereabouts, depending on the specs.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
