Get more info about your Mac
Use About This Mac and System Information to discover more about your Mac
Macs are so simple that it’s easy to forget the technology sitting under the hood. And Apple likes it this way. Instead of worrying about what version of Bluetooth they have, or what firmware revision the graphics card is using, people can enjoy OS X and get on with things.
But there are still many people who are in awe of Apple and OS X technology and are keen to know what power is under the hood. Apple has two superb services in OS X that provide exactly the sort of information ‘power users’ would be after: About This Mac and an app called System Information.
System Information enables you to drill down into every aspect of the hardware inside your Mac. With System Information you get a detailed report on the exact type, version and firmware revision of every piece of hardware that makes up your Apple Mac. Both About This Mac and System Information are invaluable when it comes to troubleshooting problems.
In this tutorial we’ll look at the information available in About This Mac and how to access the more detailed data in System Information, as well as a few tips and tricks for features you may not have noticed. Lou Hattersley
