I have unpacked MacBookAir 13". How to check using serial number or other information from the box if MacBook is equipped with English keyboard layout or with other?

Can you provide the part number? I think the standard English keyboard model is MD231LL/A (from the Apple US online store).

The end of the number is IEA/DNK – Wojciech Bednarski Jun 12 '12 at 15:05
Are you talking about the part number, which begins with MD231? – Tom Gewecke Jun 12 '12 at 15:42

I've compared two MBA boxes one labeled as IEA/DNK and one labeled as DNK/DNK. The first one was with International English (or if you are Polish this is Polish Pro for you) the second one was Danish layout (they have no programmer layout).

So it looks like the first 3 letters are keyboard layout and 3 letters after slash are country code.
