Lesson 11. Peripherals > Viewing Peripherals with System Profiler

Viewing Peripherals with System Profiler

The Hardware section of the Contents list in System Profiler displays reports for various hardware components, including buses supported by Mac OS X (for example, USB, FireWire, and PCI). After clicking a bus type, the upper-right pane of System Profiler displays a hierarchical view of the bus and devices connected to the bus. Clicking a device in the upper-right pane displays information about the device in the lower pane.

NOTE

System Profiler in Mac OS X 10.4 is significantly improved from the previous version. It now supports many more plugins, such as Power, Fonts, and Bluetooth, and reports far more information about devices on peripheral buses.
