Find LCD Panel Model Number for your MacBook or iMac

The latest release of the Macbook Air reportedly has two different manufacturers for its high resolution display. Many people are now trying to verify which make and model display they have.

You can determine the model number by typing (or copying and pasting) this lengthy Terminal command:

ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

After executing the command you should receive a set of digits and numbers. If you want to determine the manufacturer of your display, simply take the model number generated in Terminal and type it into Google. Usually various OEM part listings will show the name of the brand for your particular LCD screen.

*Note: This may not work with older iMac computers. It has been confirmed to work with most MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air machines.
