Hi all,

I would like to ask you guys how can we find out in the MBPs if the hard disk inside is actually 5400rpm or 7200rpm? I have tried to see here About this mac--->More Info... but I could not see anywhere they show 5400rpm or 7200rpm? Any idea would be appreciate.

Thank you

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.
