Age of laptop

HP Recommended
HP Laptop Notebook 15-bs0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How do I determine the age of my HP laptop notebook? I think it was purchased around 11-20-17. Under problem description it says not to include serial number, but don't you need that to determine age? What is the security issue with the serial number?

What is your HP Laptop Notebook 15-bs0xx . The series was releases around April 2017. You can work out when it was build  using its serial #.


Normally the 4th, 5th, and 6th characters to reference when the product was built. The first character is the year date (Y) and the next two (WW), the week in that year it was made.


For example Y = 8, WW = 03 which indicates your machine was built on week 03 year 2018 or from Jan. 15, 2018 to Jan. 21, 2018
