    I purchased a 17" MBP about a yr ago but am not sure whether is it a HDD or SSD. I went to "About this Mac" but I can find the description (maybe I missed it). So I went to look for the spec online and it appear there are 2 versions.

    Can anyone tell me how do I confirm this (besides asking my vendor).

    Thanks

    Go to 'About this mac' from the Apple menu and then select 'more information' and read the entries under Serial-ATA in the hardware section.

    There will be entries for your disk/SSD and DVD drive here. You should see AppleSSD here if you have the latter

    Yes, you have a 5400 rpm hdd. Apple has 3 levels of hdd speed with laptops 5400,7200 and ssd.

    Also an SSD drive in a MBP would cost a LOT more than the standard one. you should know by the price you paid.
