How well do you know the details of your Mac’s hardware? There are three basic, easy, and free ways to dig up all the details you’ll probably need regarding your Mac.
First, click the Apple icon in the left top corner of your Mac’s Menubar. Select About This Mac. Then, click the More Info… button.
That brings up another window with even more detail about your Mac, including Overview, Displays, Storage, and Memory.
That’s some nice looking eye candy, but there are easier ways to dig up all those hardware details. Use the handy and free MachineProfile app. It collects all the key technical hardware information about your Mac.
All this information is displayed in a single window on your Mac’s screen (just use the tabs for more info).
Or, if you really want the nitty gritty details about your Mac (or any other Mac ever made, or any other Apple product ever), there’s Mactracker, a free database of Apple products.
You’ll have to identify your Mac in Mactracker, but once you do, there’s even more information available– virtually every aspect of any Mac model ever, including software and price tag.
The first two methods of gathering hardware information are useful and quick, but Mactracker is the detail king. It displays information about every Mac ever, including all basic components, and other Apple products from mice to keyboards, displays to printers, even iPhone, iPod, and iPad.
