How to identify your laptop correctly

Every laptop has a Brand, Series and a Model (number).
If we take Dell XPS 13-4040 as an example: 

Dell is the brand

XPS is the series

13-4040 is the model (the first 6-7 digits is enough to search on our website)  

Some model numbers are longer, or have additional information, like this one:  Dell XPS X15L-3357SLV.  What comes after the hyphen or commas in the model number is not important in relation to finding the correct AC Adapters or Batteries on our website.

 

4 ways to identify a laptop correctly

Easiest and the best way is through the system information in windows on your laptop.

1.1- Identifying your laptop in Windows 10 and 11.  

  • Click on Windows logo on the bottom left-hand side of your screen:                
  • A window will pop up, start typing “System Information”.                                     
  • Once system information app is shown, click on it.
  • The next screen that opens will have all the necessary information on the right-hand side – Brand, Series, and the Model Number.

 

All laptop manufacturers affix an identifying sticker or mark somewhere on the laptop,
these stickers/markers are often underneath each laptop or within the battery compartment:
