A lot has happened in the past 9 years; since last comment/review in this "Speccy" outline.
Piriform was acquired by Avast in July 2017 https://press.avast.com/avast-acquires-piriform-maker-of-ccleaner
Read the press release with a substantial grain of salt

Speccy is a very basic system reader.
Free version comes in 2 varieties ...
Portable by PortableApps. com . . . . "specPortable"
Installer by CCleaner (alias. Piriform/Avast) . . . . "Speccy"

Before Avast acquired "Piriform", PortableApps.com released (portable) "Speccy" as did Piriform under the same (installer) name, "Speccy".

Avast's reputation IMO leaves a lot to be desired, if you have ever tried to uninstall "Avast AV"
... good luck ... they are reluctant to let you go.
For years I used original "Piriform" ... CCleaner + Speccy.
But now I use other more thorough programs/developers. Have you got your 3rd eye open ?

Cloud based services by Avast/Piriform ?
I am not prepared to allow Avast access to my machines under any circmstances.

The only downside is that the report is in some proprietary format and there's no option to print it. I need utility that produces a text format so I can compare different PC's or before / after reports side by side. its great fast , small , portable.

Good and nifty program. It wasn't able to detect the exact model of my Intel onboard graphics chip, though. It only displayed the generation of that chip.
