    Hi everyone, I just got my first Mac. I bought the 17" SR MBP High-Res with 7200 RPM drive. Where in OS X can I find the info about the hard drive? I can't find anywhere to confirm that it is the 7200 RPM drive. I looked in System Profiler, but I can't seem to find what I am looking for. Is there a widget or program that will tell you the manufacturer, speed, etc. for your hard drive? I searched around the forums already, but was unsuccessful. Please help me if you know how. Thanks!

    Do a Spotlight search for "System Profiler" and run the top hit. Under "Serial-ATA" you'll find the model info for your drive. I don't think it gives spindle speed, but you can backtrack on the Web from the model number to verify the speed.

    The model number should be there, just Google it to see if it's the 7200rpm version. :)

    ETA: Beaten to it... :p

    I should have read more carefully to see that you already found System Profiler. That's right, though, just Google it.

    You guys are awesome. I should have figured that out. Thanks so much.

    By the way I just checked, and it is the 7200 RPM. All worries gone!
