  • Interesting question - a quick search didn't turn up much, but there's a site you can do lookups on: http://www.chipmunk.nl/klantenservice/applemodel.html and a macrumours forum where a few people have posted their info..

    Here's a list of factories mentioned in the forum above (plus mine):

    • Factory: DL (China - Foxconn)
    • Factory: DM (China - Foxconn)
    • Factory: DN (China, Chengdu - Foxconn)
    • Factory: C0 (Quanta Computer (Susidiary = Tech Com))

    Another site offers lookups, too, but didn't have info for my 2013 MBP: http://www.appleserialnumberinfo.com. They have some interesting but unrevealing javascript validation for their lookup form..
