You probably know that going to the Apple menu and choosing “About This Mac” gives you a little window with a bit of information about your computer. You’ll find a button in that window¬†that gives you more info (in fact, in some systems the button is labeled “More Info…”).

If you hold¬†the Option key when you go to the Apple menu, “About This Mac” changes to “System Information…”, and if you click on “System Information…” you get the same report that clicking on “More Info…” produces– except this way, you do it all in one move, cutting your work in half.

Try it now, while you’re thinking of it.
