QuickBooks is Intuit’s financial management application for small businesses. The software features an input screen that’s familiar to users of Intuit’s Quicken personal financial management software, along with other features like the ability to generate reports, statements and invoices, track expenses and more.
Intuit decided to revive QuickBooks for the Mac earlier this year after discontinuing QuickBooks support for the Mac in 1998. When Quicken announced plans to produce QuickBooks 5.0 for Mac, the company said the software would be released in the first quarter of 2003, along with annual updates thereafter.
Apple’s site said that system requirements call for Mac OS 9.2.2 or Mac OS X 10.1.5 or 10.2.1 and later; 128MB RAM; 75MB hard drive space; and CD-ROM. There’s been no official word from Intuit about when QuickBooks 5.0 for Mac will launch, but Apple’s acceptance of pre-orders suggests that it shouldn’t be too far off. Apple’s Web site notes that upgrades are available for users of older versions of QuickBooks for Mac as well.
