Balance the report as I just made a post for Agilent’s VnmrJ. 🙂
I found from a web blog article that introduces the news–Bruker’s Topspin 3.1 for Mac.
Bruker’s brief introduction of Topspin for Mac machine includes features:
(note on 10/29/2012, the introduction seems gone at Bruker’s website)
- Mac OS X platform for TopSpin processing
- Inspire a new generation of NMR users, experts and students alike
- Entirely programmed in the native Apple Mac OS X environmentData analysis, processing and simulation features for efficient small molecule and structural biology research
- Ideal data processing and analysis aid for NMR training
Snapshots of Topspin running on Mac linked to Bruker’s example images show at here:

According to Bruker’s purchase link, the price is $99 of academic license for one Mac machine. The computer MAC address code must be provided meaning one license is only available for one Mac machine!!
The current version (Oct of 2011) Topspin for Mac required “Core 2 Duo” type CPU and OS 10.6 (snow leopard and later). My old macbook pro with “core duo” is not available this time. Sad. I can only try to install it on my iMac.
Maybe I should email Bruker to request something like 30-60 days free trial and make some blog articles for “Bruker Topspin on Mac” as an exchange.
