How do I determine which MacBook hardware version I have? (for RAM purchase)

On my old IBM, I could just flip the laptop over and see what model & year my laptop was.

How can I get that info on my MBP?

Click the on the Apple icon on the menu bar, hold down option, and "about this Mac" should turn into "system profiler…". You should see something for "model identifier" like MacBookPro3,1. Search Wikipedia for that model identifier.
