Find exact model of CPU – Apple OSX

This is pretty infuriating, with all the wax and polish you can’t find the exact mode of the CPU your Mac is equipped with. While this may not be a problem for most Mac owners out there, it sure was for us.

So, open a terminal window and issue the following

sysctl -n machdep.cpu.brand_string

As soon as you hit the Enter key, you should see the exact model you’re Mac has.
