I've bought a Lenovo Thinkpad L530 laptop, however i believe there's a few versions of these.

How do i find the serial/model number so that i can then find details such as MOBO specs etc so that when (for example) i'm looking into which RAM to buy & i get asked "depends what your MOBO allows" i can answer the question.

I can't seem to find anything on the laptop itself. I know it's a core i5 laptop but i don't know too much about it considering there's a few of them.

Referring to page 10 of this PDF from Lenovo, you can find a type and serial number in what appears to be the battery compartment.

Then visit Lenovo's support page and input your model number there. That should give you the information you need.

Hope that helps!

It seems my model type is 2481-2TG

Can't find any information regarding the MOBO though.

I usually use this site :

http://www.crucial.c.../systemscanner/

It will give you a pretty accurate idea of what your system is.
