This is the windows phone 8 forum, not windows 8. Wrong section.
Anyway any laptop has an unique Serial Number (a sort of IMEI, let's call it like this even if it's not correct) that can't be changed because it isn't on the hard disk. How to see this serial number, there's a different method for each OEM. Sometimes it's visible in the BIOS (or in the UEFI settings), but often is fisicaly printed on the bottom of the laptop..so first of all find out how to display this number in your specific laptop model, and then if your neighbour's pc has the same serial number that was printed on your laptop's box (of course you need your laptop's box, or probably the serial number can be found on warranty papers?). Anyway it's possible to find this out.
