A model number identifies a particular computer model. For example, A660-BT3G25X is a model number. Note that this does not identify your particular computer itself. A model that shares the first part (in this case, A660) will be similar but not have the exact same specifications. For this reason, it's important to know the full model number.
Some computers that are customized may not have a second part to the model number. For these computers, the model-part number (sometimes called the part number) is important. This usually starts with a 'P' and has two parts separated by a hyphen. Like the model number, the model-part number is not unique to a specific unit.
The serial number is completely unique. No two computers will share the same serial number. Because it identifies specific computers, it should not be publicly posted on the forum.
All of these numbers will be listed on a label on the bottom of each computer. It can also be obtained by the TOSHIBA PC Diagnostic Tool. This can be found in the Start Menu under All Programs > TOSHIBA > Utilities > PC Diagnostic Tool.
