How to Find Your HP Laptop Name, Product Number, or Serial Number
Check your laptop, its labels, and your original packaging material to find the identifying
numbers for your HP laptop.
You need the identifying information of your laptop when you're interacting with HP support.
So, what's the difference between a laptop name, product number, and serial number?
The laptop name - or model - identifies the components used to build a group of laptops.
Your laptop has a name in the same way that a car manufacturer gives a specific type of car a model name.
The product number - or SKU - identifies your HP laptop within a model number series
and establishes the regions where that laptop is sold.
The serial number is unique to an individual laptop and is used to check warranty information
and track repair, service, and order history.
For example, there could be 10,000 HP laptops with the same laptop name,
but only 1,000 that share the same product number, and only a single laptop with a unique serial number.
