MiTeC System Information X Pros & Cons

There's much to like about MiTeC System Information X.

Pros:

  • Free for home and business use
  • Very detailed information
  • Can copy data out of the program
  • Includes a summary page
  • Create a report of all the data
  • Tabbed interface for easier organization
  • Requires no installation (portable)

    My Thoughts on MiTeC System Information X

    I like how easy MiTeC System Information X is to use. It's simple to find what you're looking for and the details are just specific enough without being overwhelming.

    I say above that you can copy data out of MiTeC System Information X without having to export anything as a whole.

    Right-clicking won't work, but you can double-click the information to copy it. However, instead of copying individual information out to the clipboard, you are able to save a list of all the installed applications to a CSV file, which could be useful.

    MiTeC System Information X is beneficial for both regular and advanced users, mainly because it's not confusing to use but still provides an adequate amount of hardware and software detail. 

    Note: See Am I Running a 32-bit or 64-bit Version of Windows? to know which download link to choose for MiTeC System Information X. To launch the program, choose MSIX or MSIX64 from the extracted ZIP file.
