    "Dumb Me - can't read"

    April 15, 2011  |   By kengenex

    Version: Mactracker 6.0

    Pros

    Sounds great, if I could use it.

    Cons

    After I downloaded, installed and tried to run it, I was informed that it required OSX 10.5. My ancient Mac can only go as far as 10.4.11. Had I read the System Requirements before hand......Duh!

    Summary

    Can anyone tell me where I can download the previous version from? Thanks

    Version: Mactracker 5.3

    Pros

    Give the information that is asked about most often

    Cons

    They could add more information on each of the Macs.

    It is a handy little program to refer to once in a while when questions come up about Mac hardware

    "This is the utility what I've been LOOKING for!"

    December 11, 2010  |   By skyotter

    Version: Mactracker 5.3

    Pros

    Contains specifications on every Mac that's been made.

    Cons

    None that I can cite.

    Summary

    I have a Mac Pro that was built in Nov. 2007. I have tried, a number of times, to find out the name (version) of the Intel Xeon processors in it. But Apple tech reps and Apple Store reps at the Genius Bar have said they don't have that information. HUH?

    Well, thanks to Mactracker, I now have a confirmation of what I have thought to be the case: The chips are "Woodcrest."

    If you you look up "Xeon" on Wikipedia, you'll see a comprehensive description of the full line of Xeon chips and their specs. But, it doesn't tell you which Mac computer made use of a particular Xeon chip. And that makes sense, because that's not the purpose of the "Xeon" Wiki page. Rationale: The Intel chips are used in more than just one computer platform.

    So, the Wiki 'Xeon" page has great details about the Intel Xeon chips, but is useless for learning which computer model a particular chip was used in.

    Mactracker to the rescue! It provides the information that Wiki "Xeon" doesn't.
    But Mactracker doesn't provide information only about a particular Mac model's chip. It provides most EVERYTHING you'd want to know . . . either for utilitarian purposes or purely academic reasons (for the historian in you).

    AND IT'S FREE!
    But, I suggest that each user of Mactracker send its creator (Ian Page) some money for this very useful utility.

    Thank you Ian Page (the copyright owner)!!!

    "Complete details on ALL Mac ever released!"

    December 11, 2010  |   By coit540

    Version: Mactracker 5.3

    Pros

    No program is as thorough about every detail of all macs. It is easy to use, easy to find models, has lots of information.

    Cons

    Small wish list would include a way to look up serial numbers by auto jumping to Apple's web site serial number lookup.

    Summary

    It is just the best to find information about any Mac model ever released. If you see a Mac on eBay, for example, just look up the model number in Mactracker. All the information is there to verify. You can find specs on memory modules, how many slots, speed, video cards, etc. It's unbeatable!
