The updated MacBook Pros are rumored to be on the horizon and there's the probability that you may want to do some spring cleaning or get rid of your old Mac entirely. But, and as the case with many aging computers, you may have forgotten what exactly is under the hood of your Mac. Well, read on and we'll show you how to find out!
Click on the menu at the top-left of your screen. Select About This Mac and a window appears giving you vital statistics about your version of Mac OS X, how much RAM you have and how much memory is fitted.
Click on the More Info button in this window to open the System Profiler. From the contents on the left, scroll to Memory. Select it and the window will display how much RAM you have and if you have any free slots.
Move to Serial-ATA and select it. If your Mac is older it may be called ATA. This shows what hard drive you have and its capacity. Use the name of the connection type to determine what type of upgrade drive you need.
