Hi all. Finding the serial # is easy, but I cannot figure out what model # this is. The laptop was purchased used with no box or manuals, etc.

Is there a way to find out this information? My wife wants to sell this and buy a Macbook Pro, but I do not want to list it in eBay or Craigslist without knowing exactly what to put down.

Thanks so much.
Macbook Air, unknown model #, Mac OS X (10.5.6)

    Matt,

    Click the apple on the menu bar and select "about This mac".

    Now Hit "more Info" tab.

    The Mac Model will be listed under the Hardware overview.

    Matt,

    That a Model A1304.
    Here is some history:

    Announced in October 2008 and shipped in November, the MacBook Air (Late 2008) was no faster than its predecessor, in terms of processor speed. It gained performance, however, from a faster 1066 MHz bus, a larger 6 MB on-chip L2 cache, and a faster graphics chipset. In addition, the micro-DVI port was replaced with the new Mini DisplayPort, which was capable of driving a larger external display (2560x1600). The MacBook Air (Late 2008) shipped in two configurations: 1.6 GHz/2GB RAM/120 GB HD/$1799 U.S. and 1.86 GHz/2 GB RAM/128 GB solid-state/$2499 U.S.

    Edit: Actually the Mid 2009 also shows as MacBookAir 2,1
    Introduced in June 2009, the MacBook Air (Mid 2009) represented both a speed-bump and a cost reduction of the MacBook Air (Late 2008). It shipped in two configurations: 1.86 GHz/2GB RAM/120 GB HD/$1499 U.S. and 2.13 GHz/2 GB RAM/128 GB solid-state/$1799 U.S.
