I don't understand the removal of clone data. They only took up one folder and made Mactracker as comprehensive as possible. Besides, it's not like you have to keep track of new clones being released.

Thanks for adding the new Intel Macs. I have used Mactracker since it was a pup. I can't imagine the world without it.

As someone who has most of the PowerComputing clone information in his head to this day, it was nice to have that info in MacTracker so I could finally forget it safely and still have a solid, mostly accurate reference to which to point others. Please reconsider putting the clone information back in Mactracker 5.0.3 so those of us who want/need the info don't have to keep two copies of the software lying around.

Please, put the clone data back in 5.0.3! This has been so helpful to me and without it something major is left behind.

Just found out about Mactracker. I've been looking for this for a while, it's a very great & useful app. So, thanks.

What about adding Mac2Sell evaluation ? (

I agree with everyone else, bring back the clones!!

Also, is there any way you could optimize the code a bit? On my B&W G3 running 10.4.11, it takes the app 81 dock bounces to launch, which is more than every other app on this machine.

Hey, the PowerComputing Clones "are" Apple models since Apple bought out Power Computing and supported their hardware/software for a time.

Bring back the clone data!!! Mactracker used to be my go-to place for all pertinent machine information. Guess I'll have to rely on for the most complete data now.
