How do I check the Specs on my Macbook pro to make sure i have what i ordered? THe last time I wanted the SATA 7200rpm but they sent me the 5400. How do I see this on my mac? can't seem to find it.

Mac OS X (10.5.1)

    Launch System Profiler>Serial ATA. Note the make and model of the hard drive and then google it.

    It just says Intel ICH8M AHCI
    Model Hitachi
    So what does this mean?

    Here is something i copied from another forum site that could answer your question-

    Look in your "System Profiler", you can find it using Spotlight or looking for it in the Utilities folder, which is in your Applications folder.

    This will give you the model number, which you will then have to find online (probably using Google) to find out what speed that particular model number is.

    Then again, someone might have an easier answer.

    "That's exactly what I did. My MacBook Pro has a Seagate Momentus ST9160823AS Drive in it. Running that model number, it shows a 7200 RPM speed."

    It is very easy to do this fist go to the apple icon in the top left of your desktop click it then go down to the (about this mac) icon click it then in the window that comes up click (more info) then in hardware go down to serial ATA click it then look for the capacity info and it should say how big your hard drive is. Also this is where you can look at every piece of hardware that you have on your system

    21384e,

    Look in the box below that for the Model. Or, click on the little arrow to the left of "Intel ICH8M AHCI."

    Remember, Google is your friend. Type the specs into Google search and see what you get.
