I need the machine type and serial number of my T440s. I can't find it at the bottom of the laptop. Is this normal? I remember that it was clearly visible on my old T420s.


In that case you might appreciate this approach (run from command line):

wmic.exe csproduct list full

It gave me this output on an X200:

Description=Computer System Product 
Version=ThinkPad X200
  • Awesome, I was actually looking for a software-way to do this. – wnstnsmth Mar 11 '14 at 7:33
  • Great, after all, looking at the bottom of a laptop is almost as annoying as removing the battery. So i also prefer the "soft" way. And btw. thanks, now i know where the stickers are on our W530s. :-) – TheUser1024 Mar 11 '14 at 7:50

Found it: Unlike other models, the T440s displays the S/N and machine type in the battery compartment. Thus, to see it, you have to remove the battery.


From the command line:

wmic bios get serialnumber
