Question

Posted

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 [url="https://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/l430_l530_ug_en.pdf"]this[/url] PDF from Lenovo, you can find a type and serial number in what appears to be the battery compartment.

Then visit Lenovo's [url="http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/"]support page[/url] 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 :

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