    I've ordered a TravelMate 8200, but having only afterward having found the bad review am now worried. Anyhow, I wanted to try to make sure the gamble was safer by trying to ensure I get a newer build. The date is not printed on the outside of the packaging but the serial number may be.

    I can't believe I just asked Acer and they told me:
    First 10 digits/chars refer to the part
    number of the laptop (ie. model/build type)
    Then digit 11 is the build year eg. 6 => 2006
    Digits 12 and 13 give the week number of the build
    The rest must then I guess be a unique sequential number.
    Dunno what the trailing letter is.
