CoconutIdentityCard – Mac & iPod Build Info

Jan 25, 2007 - 3 Comments

This is a fun little program that quickly gives you information on when and where your Mac and iPod were built (it claims to check any Apple products based on serial number, but we couldn’t test this feature). There’s also an ability that allows you to check your serial number against a database to see if your Mac was reported stolen, which could be useful for those who have purchased a used Mac or iPod via Craigslist and eBay. If the Coconut name sounds familiar, its because the developer also makes CoconutBattery, a great app for Mac laptop owners.

As you can see, my MacBook was made in China (aren’t they all?) and built between the 15th and 21st of May, 2006. I’ve heard that some users are reporting Macs built in the USA, Spain, and Ireland, but all that I have seen and owned are from the People’s Republic.

    I think the date on mine is wrong, or it wasn’t built in China.
    How do I know? Well the app is telling me it was built in China between the 18/12/06 and 24/12/06. But it was delivered to an address in LA on 21/12 so that would be pretty speedy build and shipping! Although I suppose it’s possible.
