If your laptop gets lost or stolen, the exact machine type as well as its serial number would come in handy. Another very important piece of information is the laptop MAC address, which is a unique identifier assigned to all network interfaces. It’s usually printed in a human-friendly form of six groups of two hexadecimal digits, separated by hyphens or colons, for example : 00:11:44:AA:BB:FF. You’ll find all that information on stickers on the back side of the laptop.
