Apple Spec Database files contain detailed technical specifications on a variety of Apple computers, displays, and printers introduced since 1978. These specifications include information about memory configurations, power requirements, video capabilities, built-in ports, software, sound capabilities, and logic board components.

The database was originally designed for those who had a regular need for this kind of information, such as sales and support professionals. It also became an easy way for others to learn more about some of the products Apple has introduced over the years. The information is delivered in a cross-referenced database format for easy search and retrieval.

Apple stopped revising the database in August 2000, but Jeffrey Gordon released an unofficial expanded edition in September 2001—adding the Apple II and Newton lines, among others—and maintained it through January 2003. His work was so well-received that one release was downloaded over 2000 times in 48 hours, exceeding his bandwidth and bringing his site down. Several people, including Steve Wozniak, stepped in to provide mirrors. Shortly after that, FileMaker Inc. sent Gordon a free copy of FileMaker Pro 5 Developer Edition so that he could produce standalone executable versions, such as the final release archived here.
