hi,

I want to get a Macbook but new at Macs. is there a software I can download that tests hardware? like DBan gives all the specs for mac when you boot up with it. so is there a software that does diagnostics on all the hardware the same way? i want to buy on craigslist and test the hardware before i pay for the macbook. anything else i should know?

thanks.

can this disk test mobo, hdd, ram, etc. and all the components of hardware inside the macbook?

i was asking for more of a disk for IT Techs instead of the default one that comes with the laptop.

thanks though.

Yes, it is the Apple Hardware Test. I'm pretty sure it tests all of those things.
