Particulars displays system information about your Mac. It shows computer name, model name, serial number, CPU, RAM, GPU, OS version, Server version, current user, uptime, disk space, and network configuration. It can be used in 3 modes: on your desktop, as a Today Extension, or at the command line.

Particulars provides up-to-date information and dynamically changes when your system changes. For instance, if you switch Wi-Fi networks, Particulars shows the new network configuration immediately.

Particulars does not replace your desktop background image and is responsive to changes in your screen or space layout. It does not require any scripts or need any complex setup.

Particulars supports many disparate network configurations including IPv6, manual addressing, multiple addresses, captive portals, PPPoE, and VPNs.

Particulars has a special 'lab mode' to ease deployment in computer labs and datacenters. See the help book for more information.

Very Handy App!

I’m so glad that I found this app. Previously, I struggled to configure NerdTool and Übersicht to display my computer’s system information but the results were never satisfactory to me. Additionally, both those apps are a pain to work with.

Particulars does away with all the toil required with those other apps and provides quick and easy configuration & formatting options. Many thanks to Fraser Hess, the developer, for his generosity.

Needs a little work

This is probably the easiest one of its kind on a Mac. I think it needs the ability to move the location of the informaion (like BGInfo for Windows) and also it needs the ability to add free text in a new line. For me, that would give it 5 stars!
