Where do you find the serial number on an iMAC with a production date on the bottom of 2006? All information makes reference to newer ones having it on the pedestal but make no reference to the older model and I can find no serial number anywhere on the computer.
Now I see the problem. The serial number is missing because the pad that the serial number was on is gone, was torn off. I can see the glue residue in the channel. Strange place for a serial number, a part that can be pulled off with your hand. Guess we will see what Apple support says tomorrow when they call. This is great information, thanks....Bob
