This article on identifying a MacBook Pro lists the serial number as one method of identifying it. However, the article it links to, doesn't explain how to identify it either. How can I identify a Macbook Pro from its serial number.

You can enter the serial number in Apple's Online Service Assistant (if you don't remember the URL, there's a link to it in the Self Service section of Apple's main support page. It'll tell you the model name, as well as the warranty status.
