OS X (Snow) Leopard System Profiler reincarnated as System Information in OS X Lion (via: OS X Lion: Reclaiming the System Profiler Application | TMO Quick Tip | The Mac Observer)

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/11/21

Not only Microsoft has the bad habit of removing or changing features between (for Apple often minor) operating system upgrades.
This time it is between 10.6 and 107: OS X Leopard, OS X Snow Leopard and OS X Server had a “System Profiler” application that would tell you all about the hardware present in and connected to your Mac.

It has been named “System Profiler” over more than a decade (actually it had almost 3 lustrums), bot no more: As of OS X Lion, this is called “System Information”, and has been redesigned.

Both quoted names can be easily found by using the Spotlight quick search (which I think is still one of the brilliant pieces of software in OS X).
