Hi everyone :)

So I bought my first iMac27 i7 SSD after long years of using PC. Everything is new and it takes patience to learn :eek:

Please, where can I see that my drive is Solid State Drive - SSD?

I go to "About this Mac" and I see: "Processor", "Memory", "Graphics" and like.
Nothing says it is SSD though.

So what indicates that drive is SSD? :)

Thanks a lot!

Go to ----> Utilities (folder) ----> System Information (application)

In the System Information application, on the left side tab, navigate yourself to ----> Hardware ----> Storage

Click on About this Mac, More info, System report, Serial ATA.
There you will see the Hard drive details etc.

Or what Solomani said above. Both will work.

Thanks a lot for quick reply. I went to "About this Mac". This is what I see. Does it say it is SSD? I am sorry for dumb question, just don't know much about drives :D

Then keyboard short cuts are your friend. Learn them and your experience will be greatly improved. Download an app called Cheat sheet from the App store. Whatever application you are in, just hold down the cmd key and a pop up will appear with all the keyboard short cuts for that app. It's free as well which is always nice.
