Viewing System Information with System Profiler

The System Profiler gives you an exact record of what applications you have installed on your computer; along with information on the installed hardware, system extensions, and current network. It's a great place to go, if you're curious about what you've got. For example, the System Profiler not only gives you information on your installed applications, it also tells what version (including patches) you've got, and the last time you updated it. The System Profiler also gives you detailed information on your processor; its speed, and any external devices, such as your hard drives and scanners.
