Apple () menu

The menu is still in Mac OS X, but it’s no longer customizable. Instead, it lists useful commands that you’ll want to access no matter what program you’re using: Sleep, Restart, Shut Down, and so on. The menu’s quick-access icon launching features have now been taken over by the Dock (Chapter 4).

  • About This Computer. This command’s functions have been scattered across Mac OS X. To find out your Mac’s system-software version, total installed memory, and processor type, choose →About This Mac. For memory stats on running programs, go to Applications→Utilities and open Activity Monitor. It shows you, perhaps, a little more information than you need, but the memory consumption listings are still there, updated in real time. (Mac OS X programs don’t use a fixed amount of RAM; they constantly adjust as needed.)
