Speccy is a handy, portable system information tool from the makers of CCleaner

CCleaner has been one of my most used (and most trusted) apps for years. The same goes for Defraggler. There's no denying that the crew at Piriform really knows how to make useful little programs.

Speccy is a more recent addition to the family, and it's a handy little tool for gathering information about the hardware in a Windows PC. While it's not as detailed as some other system information tools, Speccy still provides a good deal of essential information and gathers it quickly. You can also take a snapshot of the system details and open them for review later.

As with other Piriform apps, Speccy is available either as an installer or a zip-compressed portable app -- perfect for taking with you on your USB flash drive.
