Attention IT professionals and Mac enthusiasts! This is a field guide to all Apple computers and other Apple devices that exist in the wild. Product specs are downloaded from the web to give you the latest info between app updates.

Our consulting company used various free resources online for years which have been great, but were disappointed in early 2009 to see that there wasn't already a program like this that would work on an iPod Touch without a network connection. We have compiled data from Apple's Technical Documents and built an easy to use interface to look them up. Also includes directory of Apple Retail stores and Glossary section for Apple technologies/other technical terms.
