With macOS 10.12 Sierra due out sometime this month, some will no doubt be wondering whether their current mac will make the cut.

First thing you’ll need to know is your model identifier. If you’re using DetectX or FastTasks 2, it’s displayed at the top of the Profile log. In FastTasks 2, you can also find it in the menu under ‘Model Overview’.

If you’re not using either of those, you can get your model identifier from  > About This Mac > System Report… Look for ‘Model Identifier’ under the Hardware Overview section.
