A friend of mine in the US had just been given a Mac. He is not sure what it is but it is running Mac OS 9.X. Is there an equivalent of "about this mac" under version 9 so that I can find out what he has got and what the specs are.

Thanks.

If I remember right, it's the same...(been awhile) Should be under the Apple menu, too.
It will have an Apple System Profiler as well. Great for finding all the specs it has.

When all else fails, try everything!

There was a thing called Apple system Profiler. I think it was in the Utilities folder but it should also be under the Apple menu in OS 9

Unfortunately I never used a Mac prior to the addition of Intel processors (my ibook wasn't new) so I haven't used Mac Os 9. The person with the computer hasn't used any version of Mac OS.

I will Email him now to look for the above. Ta

Run a search of the drive (Command F) for Apple System Profiler.

I have no idea where the default location would be, but the search I ran for it listed it as a desk accessory. As mentioned, it's probably in the Utilites folder, if 9 had one. Otherwise, check the Applications folder.

Click the thumbnail.
