10.5: Open System Profiler directly from the Apple menu System 10.5
Want super-quick access to the System Profiler application? When clicking the Apple logo in the menu bar at the top of the screen, hold down the Option key, and About this Mac changes to System Profiler. Select it, and it and will open the System Profiler application.

BTW, you don't have to hold the option when you click on the Apple. You can click (and release) on the Apple. Then press the option key to see the System Profiler option.

Very cool.
