Editors' Review

+

If you've ever wanted to expand your Mac's capabilities, you probably wondered what--and how much--your machine could handle. This free utility eliminates the guesswork, providing current, comprehensive, and accurate technical specifications on every Mac known to man, from Cupertino's latest right on down to the vintage Macintosh 128K, along with technical information on servers, other Apple devices, and OS software stretching back to System 2.0.1.

Mactracker maintains data on everything from maximum RAM and processor speed to performance benchmarks, expansion slots, firmware, built-in hardware, and more--all in a clean, newly redesigned interface that provides strong search capabilities and customizable, iTunes-style smart categories (so, for example, you could create a search by processor type). Mactracker is also fun for just taking a trip down Mac memory lane: you can flip through models sorted by release year, look up original retail prices (in multiple currencies), see icons for each machine, and even listen to original start-up chime and death chime audio. Mactracker is a must for sysadmins and technicians, and just plain useful--and fun--for anybody else.

Pros

"I had no idea so much had to be updated"

October 22, 2010  |  By WheresMyLisa

 |  Version: Mactracker 5.2.3

Pros

Lets you know when a new version of an app comes out - immediately

Cons

Apps that require PURCHASE of new versions need a permanent opt out. I have an app that comes back every day. Ugh. Maybe a button to say "Keep the version I have." Or best yet - just a button "Free Upgrades Only." Free trials are especially annoying.

"Helpful for anyone who has access to more than one Mac."

October 18, 2010  |  By alecnisbett

 |  Version: Mactracker 5.2.3

Pros

I have found this useful (and of course accurate) in identifying the characteristics of older Macs. If I want to upgrade, it tells me what will be sure to work. I can always see how what I have compares with the full range available.

Cons

Not always clear on the upper limits of what mods will fit in the spaces provided, only what is specified as usable to the Macs original designed performance. (Sometimes a higher spec mod can be fitted.)

Summary

I have used it a number of times when mods or repairs were required, or when checking on value for money when buying secondhand, and have always found t helpful.
