    Flip it over and look for a sticker on the bottom that tells you.

    I was wondering about this post. Maybe s/he means the mac address?

    - Watching abstruse output scrolling upwards too fast to be read
    - And waiting for something to go wrong

    That's the best way. To find out more about your hardware specification install: HardInfo

    I can't check at the moment, I'm on Windows. If memory serves correctly, the dmidecode command can tell you.

    hardinfo does not show anything about the second monitor plugged into my laptop. You wouldn't know a fix for that by any chance?

    Yep.
    Code:
    sudo dmidecode --type 1
    will do it.

    Thank you very much.
    This is a used laptop and i always read about the problems with toshiba so I felt it would be important to know.
    The sticker is all washed out and near impossible to read
