 For Very Old Models 

You won’t be able to do the same method as the one above, but you can take a picture of your old Mac and send it their Customer Service page. They should be able to determine what it is but may also ask other info such as the numbers at the back and etc. You may also bring the model directly to the store so the personnel can assist you first-hand.
