How to find out your RAM speed, size and type on Mac

Different Mac models use different types of RAM, and each also supports a different maximum level of RAM. Apple made the process for finding basic details about your hardware simple and easy: click the Apple logo, and go to ‘About This Mac’. This will identify the memory module type and speed, how many RAM slots there are on the Mac, and which slots are in use.
