getting a used Macbook Pro : what to check & its # of battery cycles

Last Modified: 2019-12-15
I'm checking out a used Macbook Pro 15",  768GB flash storage, i7.

how do I verify it's an i7  &  the storage is an SSD/flash (not HDD)?

There's BatteryInfoView  for Windows which can view how many times
a battery has been used.  Is there a similar freeware for Macbook Pro
running on OSX (think it's the 2nd latest version)?

Guess I have to look for scratches/dents on the screen & if its Wifi
works.  Anything else?
