Micromat have become IMHO a bit greedy with the cost of TechTool Pro yearly updates. But THIS IS FREE and useful. So thank you Micromat.

Tried opening the app (downloaded via MacUpdate) for use with Mojave. The window opened and then quickly closed each time. Possibly a compatibility issue?

Great Product! Disappointed that support was dropped for 10.6. It would be nice if a link to the last 10.6 compatible version were posted.

Supposedly free, but you have register an account and give away both your personal and billing information (credit card details). Scary!

We like that it displays the installed firmware version. Might there be a way that it could tell us what the latest available firmware is, so we would know when our firmware is out of date?

MachineProfile is a really handy tool. It quickly provides a wealth of information, all in one window. And it is free. (or nearly so, see below)

I am particularly thrilled that it supports Snow Leopard, as well as the more recent OSes. The ability to do this shows the high level of expertise that Micromat programmers have.

Besides the obvious uses, it is also is handy to have in Deploy Studio Netboot Sets. That allows us to quickly get information about the unit that is about to be imaged or under test.

However, there is one area of information, that would be handy for it to include, that it does not. It would be really nice if it included information about any drives in the unit.

For any hard drives, or SSDs, it would be nice to know their capacity, make, model, and interface. For optical drives, it would be nice to know their type, make, model and interface.

But still, a great program.

With respect to the ability to download controversy. The download link provided above, by MacUpdate does seem to work. But, I have a MacUpdate account, so what I get may be different from what someone without an account gets. One can understand the concern, as MacUpdate has been accused of substituting their own installers, which may install extra, unwanted, stuff.

However, Big Johnson does seem to be correct. I went to the Micromat web site, and I was unable to find a download link that did not require one to submit information, or use the app store. If it does exist, it is well enough hidden that most of us would never find it.

Obviously, Micromat does have the right to do this, even if many wish that they would not. And if this were a piece of junk, instead of the high quality program that it is, I doubt any would bother to complain.

Machine Profile is apparently available now only from the Mac App Store - which may be why the MacUpdate link doesn't work. Unfortunately, the App Store has not been working all that well recently so moving the app there is not such a smart move - not to mention not telling MacUpdate about the change. FUBAR

This MacUpdate description incorrectly identifies v2.0.5 as compatible with Snow Leopard. The 2.0.5 installer Alerts to a minimum requirement of Lion on the startup disk.

The app is NOT 2TB in size. More like 4-5mb… should be updated.

Using Lion --- with it's less-than-freindly "About This Mac". MacProfile does as it says, nice and clean -- with a couple of observations. You have an "opportunity" to learn more ---which gives you a peek at TechToolPro and Protogo Also, interestingly, my machine was assembled in E7. ( I have not been able to find that on a map) ;-P
