    New to the Mac . . . .

    I updated my new iMac to 1.3. Apparently it happened successfully. But, when I looked for information on the current installed SW update for my iMac I could not find it anywhere.

    Guess this is a dumb question, but I am frustrated after looking for 15 minutes. Where can I find the current iMac SW Rev Number on my machine?

    Thanks for your help.

    About this Mac, then More Info, then it should be the SMC number.

    Thanks, chadrob30 . . .

    I did find it and, to my surprise, it reads 1.21f4 and
    NOT 1.3 as I had expected. :confused:

    I downloaded and installed 1.3; successful, according to the dialog box that came up after the installation.

    SWAG: Maybe the 1.3 download package detects something in a given machine, probably based on SN, and installs only part of the 1.3 package. Since I have never experienced the now-infamous "iMac Freeze" with this machine I bought September 5, perhaps the part of the upgrade that addresses that problem was not installed. ? ? ? ?

    Hmmm, I'm at 1.20f4 :confused: And it says there are no updates for my computer at this time, lol.

    Same here. I'm running Leopard, so i should have 1.3. Also, this could be the version that never experiences the iMac freeze? I'm crossing my fingers.

    Sure looks like the 1.3 update is adaptive, possibly based on the machine SN.

    I think the 1.21f4 is the 24" and the 1.20f4 is the 20" like mine.
