In this week?s tip, I?ll discuss a cool feature that you may be wholly unaware of?even if you're a long-time Mac user.
In Lion and Mountain Lion, click the Apple menu and choose About This Mac. Yeah, yeah, you?ve seen this before. But now click More Info.
In the old days, you'd be taken to System Profiler, and you?d see a fairly drab list of specs about your Mac?which you can still see in Mountain Lion by choosing Show System Report from the File menu. But now More Info offers a slicker view that puts your Mac?s most important information front and center.
For example, if you need to quickly find out exactly which MacBook Air you have, the Overview screen tells you. Need your serial number? It?s here too?and you can create a text snippet of it by highlighting it and dragging it to the desktop.
