In some cases, you may need to know the exact model of the laptop, and not just the manufacturer ASUS or ACER for example. Many users are confused by such a question and are not always able to determine exactly what is required.
In this article I want to dwell on the simplest and fastest ways to determine the model of a laptop that will be relevant no matter what manufacturer your laptop is (ASUS, Acer, HP, Lenovo, Dell, Samsung, etc. relevant for everyone).
Consider several ways.
1) Documents upon purchase, passport for the device
This is an easy and quick way to find out all the information about your device, but there is one big "BUT".
In my opinion, there are even simpler and faster ways to determine the laptop model without any papers. About them below.
2) Stickers on the device case (side, back, on the battery)
On the vast majority of laptops there are stickers with various information about the software, device specifications and other information. Not always, but often among this information there is a model of the device (see. Fig. 1).
Fig. 1. The sticker on the device is Acer Aspire 5735-4774.
By the way, the sticker may not always be in a visible place: it often happens on the back of the laptop, on the side, on the battery. This search option is very relevant when the laptop does not turn on (for example), and you need to determine its model.
3) How to see the device model in the BIOS
In BIOS, in general, you can refine or configure many points. The laptop model is no exception. To enter the BIOS, you need to press the function key after turning on the device, usually: F2 or DEL.
If you have problems with entering the BIOS, I recommend that you read a couple of my articles:

– BIOS entry on a LENOVO laptop: https://pcpro100.info/how-to-enter-bios-on-lenovo/ (there are some "pitfalls").

After you enter the BIOS, it is enough to pay attention to the line “Product name” (Main section. that is, the main or main). Most often, after entering the BIOS. you don’t even need to go to any additional tabs.
4) Through the command line
If Windows is installed on the laptop and it loads, then you can find out the model using the usual command line. To do this, enter the following command in it: wmic csproduct get name, then press Enter.
Next, the exact model of the device should appear in the command line (example in Fig. 3).

5) Via dxdiag and msinfo32 on Windows
Another easy way to find out a laptop model without resorting to any specials. software. is to use the system utilities dxdiag or msinfo32.
The operation algorithm is as follows:
1. Press the WinR buttons and enter the dxdiag (or msinfo32) command, then the Enter key (example in Fig. 4).

Then, in the window that opens, you can immediately see information about your device (examples in Figs. 5 and 6).

6) Through special utilities to inform about the characteristics and condition of the PC
If the above options did not fit or did not work out, then you can use specials. utilities in which you can find out in general, probably, any information about the installed glands in your device.
There are many such utilities, some of them I cited in the following article: https://pcpro100.info/harakteristiki-kompyutera/#i
Staying on each, probably, does not make much sense. As an example, I will give a screenshot from the popular program AIDA64 (see. Fig. 7).

This is the end of the article. I think the proposed methods are more than enough &# 128578; Good luck!
