Wi-Fi Anonymity Question

Hi all. Last week I used Wetherspoons Wifi which is provided by TheCloud, on a netbook that I regularly use on my home Wifi for general surfing & managing finances, email etc...

I was just wondering, if I was to return to Wetherspoons to use their Wifi, is there anything that could be used to identify that this netbook had connected through that network before? (this would include if the hard drive had been formatted)

Or, after using that Wifi, is there anyway that the netbook/or myself could be identified? I know that my IP address will not follow me about, cookies usually are wiped after each session. All my logins were secure. Was just wondering, like is there anything else that could be used. Like serial numbers? I'm not conspiracy nut or anything, and you're probably wondering why I ask, but I'm just curious thats all. CHEERS!

that the free access WiFi router owner can identify you individually from a previous visit.
