What are two ways to see the computers serial number from within the computer interface (i.e., to make the computer show it to you on the screen rather than reading it physically from the back or inside of the machine)?

1. Go to About This Mac, Click twice the text where it says the Mac OS X Version (although this is not a button, the text will change). (Click once over this version number shows you the OS Build version, clicking twice gets you to the computers serial number).

2. Open the Apple System Profiler and look in the Hardware section
