What info needed to show on Ebay when I sell my MacBook?

How do I get the required information besides what is available in the Apple > About window?

I need info on my 500 GB SSD, since it is an older drive, purchased in 2012.

I also need to show the battery's ability to hold a load. How do I do that?

Thanks

Apple Logo >> About This Mac >> System Report
You can then use File >> Save to save it into a place and upload whenever needed.

For battery load you can also do a Coconut Battery screenshot, however I believe System Report should be enough.

You don't have to. As I mentioned before you use something like a CoconutBattery.
